Senior School Clan Music Competition

Thursday 25 October 2018

On Thursday 18 October, the Senior School enjoyed an afternoon of music at the annual Clan Music Competition.

The competition was adjudicated by Mr McCall, Director of Music at St Columba’s College.

Every break and lunchtime, music had been flowing through the corridors in the Dickinson building as rehearsals for the much anticipated annual Clan Music Competition reached fever pitch. Musicians from across the three clans produced some dazzling displays in the categories of Solo Vocal, Solo Instrumental, Ensemble and the much anticipated Clan Song, this year’s category being music from the 00’s.

Congratulations to Macneil who were crowned the overall winners!
