ON THURSDAY 16TH MARCH, SINGERS FROM YEAR 7 UPWARDS COMPETED IN THE YOUNG SINGER COMPETITIONS SPONSORED BY CREATIVE RISK SOLUTIONS.
On Thursday 16th March we were delighted to welcome adjudicator Robert Evans to Christ College for our annual Singer of the Year Competition, which was held in the Chapel.
This year the competition was divided into Intermediate and Senior Rounds, such is the breadth and depth of singing tuition here.
In the afternoon the Intermediate round was adjudicated internally by our own wonderful singing teachers; India L (Year 11) was announced as the winner with her performance of ‘How could I ever know’ from ‘The Secret Garden’, with music by Lucy Simon. Peris HP (Year 7) and Alfie J (Year 9) were runners up.
In the evening, Cai W (Year 12) led a very strong field to win first prize with his performances of ‘Le Secret’ by Fauré and ‘Bewitched, bothered & bewildered’ by Linda Ronstadt. The runners up were Lydia D (Year 10) and Henry E (Year 12). The competitions were kindly sponsored by Creative Risk Solutions and the Dargavel Trophy for Singer of the Year was presented to Cai by Lucinda Dargavel.
