After two years’ unforeseen pause, Battle of the Bands returned, stronger than ever!
The bands competed in three strong and challenging rounds and delivered their final performance for the “Grand Finale” on 9th June. The event perfectly showcases the originality and talent of our Senior School pupils. The final round is when the audience and judges really get to witness the development and growth of each band throughout the competition.
For the final, in the spirit of the Queen’s Jubilee which was celebrated the same week, the theme was British Invasion. The bands were challenged to give their own take on the songs from the 1960s and 1980s by British artists that took over the world.
The judging panel – Mr Seidl, Dr Gaissler and Mr Silva – challenged each of the bands to perform a song within the theme. Our four contestants were:
- astrosalt (Elisa – Piano and Vocals; Ana Lúcia – Vocals and Guitar; Antonio Gabriel – Guitar; Angelina – Bass; Lucas – Drums).
- 3 AM (Anna Clara – Keyboard and Voice; Helena – Piano and Voice; Manuela – Guitar and Voice)
- Echo (Sofia – Voice and piano; Bruna – Voice and various instruments; Lev – Drums – Sarah – Bass)
- The Juniors (Anna Clara – Vocals; Constantino – Piano and Vocals; Max – Bass; Pedro – Drums and more; Henrique – Guitar)
