Sem 2 Palladian Cup flashes of potential

Sem 2 Palladian Cup flashes of potential

1 month ago

The back half of the year’s Palladian events was filled with a mix of outstanding works, and unrefined gems. The College finished equal fourth place alongside The Women’s College. The highlight of the semester for the College was Palladian Art. Senior, Ethan Tsui, scored 2nd place overall for his piece, ‘Locus Amoenus No. IX’, while Freshman, James Rossiter, submitted a fantastic work, ‘Disenfranchised’, which was unlucky not to place. Our drama and instrumental ensembles were fantastic, and showcased the creativity amongst our residents. Graduate House member, Jack Stephens, will take over as Director of Music in 2022, and has big plans, with enthusiasm to match, for the College’s musical potential. Watch this space.

Professor Alexander Cambitoglou AO was a resident tutor at Paul’s from 1961 to 1967. He died in 2019 at the age of 97 and has left an enormous legacy to the University of $6 million for the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens which he founded in 1980 with connections to 16 foreign institutes in Greece.
