House Music Competition, Thursday 6th February (all parents)

Following 3 weeks of intensive auditioning for the House Music Competition, Mr McVittie and Mrs Godley have enjoyed hearing almost 500 many and varied performances – a definite highlight of their roles! Every audition contributes points to the house total, which is then divided by the number of pupils in the house, to provide an average score per house. The finals of this first part of the competition (the second part for popular music and ensembles will happen next term) will take place on Thursday 6th February in the Centenary Hall and will be adjudicated by Mrs Kirsty Winnan – Executive Director of Gloucester Academy of Music. All are welcome to attend this competition which will take place in the Centenary Hall, according to the schedule attached. Well done to all pupils for taking part so willingly and a particular well done to the finalists.
