Melissa wins Junior Inter-House Music crown

A host of talented musicians at Rydal Penrhos showed off their outstanding talent at a special event.

The school held its annual Junior Inter-House Music competition, which saw a large number perform in front of the Memorial Hall crowd on Wednesday, March 28.

Year 7 pupil Ada Vonbank got the competition underway with a saxophone solo, which was one of her two performances on the day, with the 12-year-old also producing a vocal effort to close out the event.

Caitriona Searl’s stunning singing performance was another highlight, while Emily Jones also demonstrated her immense vocal talent with her contribution to the showcase.

The trio of Jonathan Osbourne, Will Tavernor and Edward Altoft brought some rock and roll to the competition with their rendition of the cult Whites Stripes classic Seven Nation Army, with Zac Roberts also showing off his guitar skills with a polished contribution.

There were plenty of instrumental performances for the audience to enjoy, with Mellissa Vos and Noah Langford performing well on piano and saxophone respectively, while Ethan Bytheway’s trumpet solo was another eye-catching element to the event.

Lily Davies and Ruby Merrick’s duet brought with it another rousing ovation, while Thomas Richards showed tremendous courage during his brilliant vocal solo.

Director of Music Pete Williams had the unenviable task of choosing a winner, and after much deliberation, he announced Payne representative Melissa as the first placed entry.

Osborn’s Zac came in second spot, with Thomas (Osborn) and Ada (Wesley) in joint third.
