By Lara Alsaid
Tuneful students battled it out in a music competition last night(TUE,MAR15) at 2Funky Music Cafe as part of the annual Varsity contest between De Montfort University(DMU) and University of Leicester(UOL).
Varsity is a yearly tradition where during a week, DMU and UOL compete in different sports and activities.
The DMU Music Society competed against UOL by choosing three bands from its membership to perform in the competition.
First year DMU student Alicia Santamaria, who is a member of DMU Music Society, said: ”It felt exciting, this was the first time I experienced this. I have heard the bands that perform for DMU, and they are really good. I even voted for one of them to represent us tonight.”
The bands performed both covers and original songs with different genres, the most popular one being rock.
It was a perfect night to bring two universities together through a common interest for music.
After impressive performances from both universities, DMU ended up bringing back the trophy for the Varsity music competition.
