Last weekend we hosted the 3rd Annual COBIS Music Festival. Schools from Moscow, Slovenia, Romania, Prague, Spain and Kuwait competed for the titles of having the best musicians in the world.

200 students took part and the standard of musicianship was outstanding. All styles of music were represented from Rock bands to string Octets.

Saturday saw competitions take place in four rooms for instrumentalists, vocalists and pianists, and they were judged by members from the Orchestra of the Region of Murcia.

On Sunday workshops took place in the morning for Orchestra and Choir followed by the announcement of Prize winners for each category.

The afternoon was a celebratory concert of all the students who gained first place.

We did well here in Murcia with Sofia and Saul gaining 2nd place in the Ensemble category, The Samba band gaining 3rd Place in the Large Instrumental group category, Samantha gaining 2nd Place in Vocal Solo Key Stage 3, Theo gaining 1st place in Drum Kit Solo, and Maria gaining 1st place in Woodwind Solo Key Stage 4/5.

Well done to all!
