Musical talent showcased at annual Intermediate Inter-House competition

Some of Rydal Penrhos’ most talented vocalists and musicians took the stage for a special competition.

The school held its annual Intermediate Inter-House Music competition on the final day before the Easter break, with a host of pupils showcasing their respective gifts in vocal and instrumental categories.

Director of Music Pete Williams has the extremely tough task of judging the event, which saw Darcie Harker-Weston take home the vocal prize after a truly stunning solo effort.

The immensely talented Bella Rutherford was awarded second for her incredible contribution, with the dulcet tones securing him third place.

Other performances of note came from Shruthi Ganapathi, who drew a standing ovation from those in attendance, with the quirky guitar and singing solo from Beau Holden drawing widespread praise.

A transcendent Piano solo from Juan Rajagopal saw him take away with instrumental category prize, with Megan Gibson’s performance earning her second spot.

Ethan Bytheway’s Trumpet solo was another impressive showcase of his talent, with Ben Davies’ exceptional drumming also on display to further enhance what was a superb competition overall.

Mr Williams, said: “It was another fantastic Intermediate Inter-House Music competition and I was blown away with the level of performances from each pupil taking part.

“We are fortunate to have an incredible amount of musical talent to work with here at Rydal Penrhos, and they are all benefitting enormously from being given the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience on a consistent basis.”
