Somerville Strings dazzled the audience and impressed the adjudicator in the A Grade String Section of Music Fest on Tuesday 18 October, scoring above 90% in all nine elements.
Their musicianship, precision, pure intonation and stage presence received special mention.
Congratulations to all students in this fine ensemble! This is the 9th Platinum Award for this ensemble out of nine years and is the 24th Platinum for Somerville House in nine years.
Music Fest, hosted by Prestige Music, is the largest school competition in the southern hemisphere, with over 25,000 students participating. Somerville House String Orchestras have been involved in this festival since it commenced ten years ago.
