Over the weekend, the best musicians from the Boys’ School attended the annual Lewis Eady Music Competition in Ponsonby. Each year our students attend this competition, impressing the judges with their skill. This year was no different with a gold, two silvers and a bronze award for the four groups entered!

The Saint Kentigern Jazz band played the ‘Theme from Peter Gunn’, and the judges commented on the band’s sense of jazz – making special mention of the expertise of the trumpets.

The Chamber Group members played really well, and the Kentigern Minstrels got everyone dancing in their seats with their catchy tune. The Jazz combo concluded the competition with a snazzy piece that made everyone smile!

Well done to the all the boys!
