Cardinal Vaughan band is the toast of West London
A Cardinal Vaughan band, emerged victorious at a Battle of the Bands live event last week, beating off stiff competition from bands from 7 partner schools in the region.
Playing the Kings of Leon song ‘Use Somebody’, the band brought the house down to be crowned the best school band in West London. The competition is part of the West London Partnership, an initiative forged to bring together a number of schools in the area.
Band member Maisie comments: “We practice twice a week after school and would like to thank Mr Price for letting us have full access to the music rooms. We have really worked as a team and we’re so pleased that our dedication has paid off. We are proud to represent the Vaughan and win the 1st place against some very tough competition. Thank you to the other school bands - we thought they were all great!”
Miss Whelan, Associate Head & Head of Upper School, adds: “This is a wonderful partnership, and I am so proud of the pupils' commitment. I was at the final to support the pupils and was blown away by their zest for performance. I would also like to thank all the schools in the partnership for their support and collaboration. Events like this perfectly demonstrate the power of schools connecting.”
Huge congratulations to all the band members - Maisie, Ellie, Peter, Harry, Clotilde and Neo! We would also like to thank Josephine St. Croix (Upper Sixth) for her role as our West London Partnership Student Council representative.
The performance will be shared online by the West London Partnership this week. We look forward to sharing this with you.
