House Singing Competition 2018

Thursday 1 November 2018

Audiences in both the Alington Hall and - via a live stream - in front of their own screens across the world enjoyed a wonderful evening of music and entertainment at the annual House Singing Competition.

A huge amount of time, work and imagination had gone into each of the House performances.

We were honoured to welcome three extremely experienced musicians to judge the competition: Joe Belham, from the award-winning a cappella group Sons of Pitches; Andrew Tipple, Old Salopian and now a freelance operatic bass with a huge breadth of repertoire and experience; and Leigh Mason, Musical Director of the internationally acclaimed Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir. We are very grateful to them for their adjudication and thoughtful comments.

Thanks, too, to MicroVideoand all the technical crew involved on the night, and to Mr Percival and Mr Walters for the entertaining commentary they provided throughout the evening for those watching the event online via the live streaming.
