House Music Competition

Last week, Freemen’s music students competed in the Junior and Senior House Music Competition, confidently performing in front of both parents and fellow students.

Our Music Department was joined by Marjory King who adjudicated the Junior competition. Marjory was formerly Head of Strings at Wycombe Abbey School and taught at the Junior department of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She also leads an illustrious performing career as a violinist. As well as selecting winners and commendations for each category, Marjory gave extremely positive feedback to a highly impressive cohort of musicians.

Many congratulations to all of the students who took part, there were many outstanding performances!
