Bobber Pot, the strongly contested unison house singing competition, was held on Sunday, 18 October in New Hall. In the absence of an audience, each House recorded their song, and these recordings were sent to the adjudicator for her appraisal.
This year’s judge was Naomi Crellin, a renowned singer and arranger, who is the Music Director of Australia’s leading vocal jazz ensemble, The Idea of North. She joined us online from Australia for her insightful and incisive adjudication.
Congratulations to Kingsgate House (Beloe’s) on their winning performance of Irving Berlin’s Let’s face the music and dance. Second went to Hawkins' (Chawker's) with their lively S.O.S and Du Boulay's (Cook's) secured third place with a rousing rendition of Viva la Vida.
