PUPILS TRIUMPH IN HOUSE MUSIC
Pears School came alive with Repton Prep's Young Musician and House Music competitions.
The audience of parents and pupils, as well as judges - Repton's Music Fellow, Mr Richard Farr FRSA and Prep's Director of Music, Mrs Sue Bloor - were treated to an outstanding array of musical talent, including vocalists, strings, woodwind, brass and percussion performances.
Many congratulations to all the pupils who demonstrated commitment and resilience by dedicating hours of practice to their beautifully rehearsed pieces. Each nuanced performance showed enormous skill and showcased the variety of opportunity on offer at Repton Prep, as well as the passion of both pupils and music teachers.
The overall winners were Year 5 violinist Phoenix Z for Juniors and for the Seniors, Year 7 pupil Natasha H, who gave an outstanding performance on the kettle drums.
Our Houses then gave high energy performances, bringing the whole school together in song and laughter. Alexander was up first with 'The Greatest Show' from box office smash, The Greatest Showman. They were followed by Mountbatten bringing us 'Naughty' from West End hit Matilda. Next came Tedder's rendition of 9-5 by Dolly Parton and finally Wavell brought the House down with 'You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile' from the great classic, Annie.
Tedder were crowned winners, with Alexander enjoying second place and Wavell and Mountbatten taking joint third place.
