“ENCORE“ (now in its 3rd year) is a Secondary Music Competition like no other – this is an opportunity to show off your school’s musical ability as well as the chance to be original and pull off a performance that could earn your school music department up to £500 CASH!
2017 Champions – The Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls
Best Original Arrangement – Brentside High
2018 Champions – The Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls
Ensemble and Technical Excellence – Twyford CE High School
The event will be held at Greenford Hall on the 13th March 2019 @ 7pm – Tickets will be available for the 500 seater auditorium showcase for friends and family to come and support. The concert will also be streamed LIVE, so the whole school can be supporting from home!
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 2019 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!
