This is not a classical music competition, so if you choose to do a ‘classical piece’ it’s got to be entertaining to a wide audience – don’t just get some music and play well, we want a performance! Maybe your own arrangement or mashup with vocals to a piece that doesn’t usually involve the voice – think outside the box!
It’s not a battle of the bands either, we don’t want it to be a band that already exists – add a string section or a horn section – don’t just do a cover the same way as the original – again think outside the box – its got to entertain people!!
The number one thing to make sure is whatever ensemble lineup or genre of music you choose, the quality has got to be amazing!!! This is to crown your school CHAMPIONS for 2018 and potentially earn your school music department some money that could help support your school. This is your chance to show Ealing what your school’s made of!
