The first ever House Ensemble Competition took place on Monday afternoon in the Amey Theatre. This new initiative sees each house put together a small ensemble of musicians to play a musical item before an audience of their peers. This year Richard Stafford, our Director of Music, had the challenging but enviable task of adjudicating the competition. The sheer range of music on offer was astounding with everything from romantic chamber works through to the Arctic Monkeys. In the end there could only be one winner though. Austin House and O’Doherty’s were awarded joint third and Crescent House came in a close second. Pygott’s took home the trophy with a fun but accomplished performance of Jelly Roll Morton’s ‘King Porter Stomp’ featuring, perhaps for the first time on they Amey Theatre Stage, a washboard played by Edmund. Many congratulations to all involved!
