Bevan Cup highly contested

Alice Liu placed third in the Year 7 and 8 piano in the junior strings in the Bevan Cup at St Peter’s School.

With nearly 200 students performing as musical soloists, St Peter’s School’s Bevan Cup competition remains a tightly contested celebration of musical excellence.

The event, held on Monday, September 24, was split into four categories – piano, vocal, guitar/bass/drums, and instrumental, which included woodwinds and strings.

Victoria Hos finished first in the senior vocal category, second equal in the senior strings and highly commended in senior piano.

Director of Performing Arts, Stephen Morton-Jones, said industry specialists were brought in as adjudicators. “Music has an incredible tradition of success at St Peter’s. The school’s founder Arthur Broadhurst was a passionate musician,” said Stephen.

Stephen said about a third of the whole school roll receives one-on-one music lessons every week.

“This sees nearly 350 students attending music lessons every week. Just under 200 of these students performed in the Bevan Cup,” he said.

“Winners of each category were richly deserved. The standard of performance was outstanding, and it’s a wonderful testament to the work ethic of the students and the quality of teaching and learning taking place.”

Blake Boswell finished very highly commended in the senior vocal category.
