House Music 2022

#CanfordExpress #CanfordExcel

Pupils from across all houses and year groups took part in this year’s House Music competition.   Day Houses competed for the winning awards in the Music School on Friday 30th September, with the Boarders’ event on Sunday 2nd October.  Both events were live streamed for families, staff and pupils to enjoy.

Each House performed a House Song, Contemporary and Classical in repertoires which combined both fun music making in the whole House element with impressive musical talent in the smaller group and individual performances.  As ever, there was an array of different musical styles which makes this event a true celebration of Music at Canford.

The eventual winners were as follows:

Day Houses House Song – Wimborne with ‘Pompeii’ by Bastille

Girls’ Boarding House Song – Marriotts with ‘Runaway Baby’ by Bruno Mars

Boys’ Boarding House Song – Monteacute with ‘Black Magic’ by Little Mix

Contemporary – School House with ‘Skyfall’ by Adele

Classical - Salisbury with ‘Hornpipe (Miniatures for piano trio)’ by Frank Bridge

Joint Overall Winners – Salisbury and Monteacute

Head to the Canford YouTube Channel to watch recordings of both Boarding and Day House performances.

Many congratulations to the winners and to all the pupils and staff involved in another memorable House Music weekend.
