House Singing lifts the roof at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama

Last night Director of Music at Hereford Cathedral School, Mr David Evans had the unenviable task of judging the much anticipated House Singing competition.

Themed on Songs from Take That, the three Houses wowed the audience at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a mix of House Choir and A Capella performances from more than 100 pupils.

Judged against six criteria, it was very close, with Euddogwy announced as this year's winners, followed closely in second place by Dyfrig and Teilo in third.

Of the winning house, Euddogwy, Mr Evans said: "There was super, sensitive singing with lovely subtlety in the full choir performance of Rule the World. Good, clear diction was used throughout and there was perfect texture."

Of Euddogwy's A Cappella performance of Yesterday, Mr Evans added: "This is an iconic tune which needs time and space.  There was a fantastic start and it was a suitable arrangement which worked well for both the boys and the girls.  Well done."
