The High School Wins Prestigious Award for Best Orchestra

On Saturday 5 March, members of The High School Orchestra gathered in Wesley College to compete in the Inter-Schools Music Festival.  As we were the penultimate performers in the Second Level Orchestra Competition, we had a long wait, but eventually our time came to take to the stage.  We performed an arrangement of the Downton Abbey Suite by John Lunn, a piece which we feel perfectly strikes the balance between classical and popular music.
There was a nervous silence as we awaited the result, but we were ecstatic to learn that we had been awarded first prize.  The High School was presented with the Keveney Cup for the first time since 2012.  We should like to thank our conductor, Ms. Rothwell and Ms Bourke and Mrs Hutchinson-Edgar for all their help and support.  We hope that the orchestra will continue to build on this achievement in the months and years to come.
