On March 23rd St Edward’s Music department hosted the annual Battle of the Bands competition. Eight competing bands as well as performances from the school Jazz Band, Orchestra, BTEC bands and a newly formed staff band dazzled the packed out hall. One audience member said “I’ve been to the last four Battle of the Bands, but this was the best one yet”.
After a gruelling contest and an exceptionally high standard all round, there could only be one winner of the Best Band award: Castl featuring Amber Blaney, Sophie Raldene, Lottie Savage, Tom Day and Christian Kuziara won by just a single audience vote! The judges selected Kieran Scott and Amber Blaney for the Best Performer award and Liz Shannon-Delizo and Ethan Newman won Best Original Song. Well done to all involved and looking forward to Battle of the Bands 2018!
