Violin superstar Shannon Yang comes away with Senior Inter-House Music crown

Gifted musicians at Rydal Penrhos battled it out for bragging rights at a special event this week.

The school held its annual Senior Inter-House Music competition on Wednesday, April 5, which was one of the final activities before staff and pupils break up for the Easter holidays.

A total of seven acts took part in-front of a packed Memorial Hall audience, with Osborn’s upper sixth form pupil Shannon Yang coming away with the crown after a stunning violin solo.

Judges awarded joint-second place after a highly competitive afternoon, with the Payne house trio of Adele Parry, Adam Sabri and Amelia Perring sealing one of the spots for their highly popular version of country roads.

They were joined in joint-second spot by Wesley’s Sara Owen, who gave an exceptional performance in her piano solo.

The remaining competitors also performed to a very high standard, with Elishia Phillips, Alex Roberts, Imogen Camp and Charlotte Owen all drawing huge applause from the crowd.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “As always, the standard of each performance was to a very high standard and congratulations to all for their wonderful efforts.

“It is a very daunting experience getting up in-front of the whole school, but our pupils always take it in their stride and it was great to see every one of them flourishing.”
