John Martyn Memorial Music Competition
Jal house won the John Martyn Memorial Music trophy in the inter-house music competition held on Friday, 13th February 2015 in the special assembly. They sang ‘Teri hai zameen” and won the trophy. Ms. Chinni Swami, our judge, appreciated the sense of rhythm in all the participants and suggested that we pay more attention to the pitch.
This rolling trophy is very special as it is a personal memento of John Martyn sir. In 1966, when he retired as the Doon School’s Headmaster, Hyderabad house had gifted this violin to him. Our Trustee Dilsher Singh Virk sir has donated this to the school. In future, instead of inter-house, we may organize inter-school music competition and this trophy could go to the winner.
