House Singing Competition 2018
After three weeks of strenuous and stress inducing house singing rehearsals at any time or location possible in the school’s busy schedule, the four houses gathered in the theatre for the greatly anticipated clash of the year, the Mowden House Singing Competition. This is always coincidentally placed in the school calendar as close as anything can be to the more famous Eurovision Song Contest, but that is not a patch on Mowden’s competition, which is possibly the most competitive event of the Mowden year, including all other sports, exams, plays, music performances. On one of the hottest days of the year so far, the four teams sat nervously waiting for Mr Fowlds to set the scene. First up were Collingwood with the Elton John song “I’m Still Standing” followed by Bewick singing George Ezra’s “Budapest.” Stephenson went on third with “Glorious” and finally, it was Grey’s turn, who sang “A Million Dreams” from “The Greatest Showman”. Our thanks go to Andy Webster, Head of Woodwind, Brass and Percussion at Uppingham, for coming to judge the competition.
