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!

Gold was awarded to the Kentigern Minstrels, three recorder players (Luca Evans, Edward MacCulloch and  Angus Paterson) who wowed the judges with their version of ‘The Cowboy Sat on the Cactus.’ The Jazz Combo were awarded silver for ‘Cold Duck Time.’ Following on, the Jazz Band also received silver for ‘Uptown Funk’ which was a definite crowd pleaser! Strings Attached, with Sunny Le on piano and Eden Zhang and Gabriel Lee on violin played Sonata in F Major.
