Tom Talbot wins 2nd place at Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Nationals

Congratulations to Tom Talbot for winning second place for his vocal composition Come Sweet Death at SGCNZ Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Nationals last weekend!

His piece features a lead vocal line of one of Shakespeare’s poems from his play Twelfth Night where the foolish clown Feste is entertaining the court with a song about death and funerals. The vocal line is accompanied by piano, clarinet, cello and drums to create the sullen, yet melodic mood necessary to support the deathly theme of the poem.

The school is very proud of your work!
