The Dec. 8 competition at The Mall Bangkapi was sponsored by the ministries of Education and Culture with Bansomdejchaopraya Rajabhat University and the Melodion Association to promote music programs among students of all ages.
Phothisamphanphitthayakhan won the Senior Mattayom bracket against eight other schools including heavy favorite Ratchasima Wittayalai School, which had won a world championship.
“We had been training the youths for more than three months to compete in the program,” Saroj said. “This is our first time participating and we have done our best. We never expected to win HRH Crown Prince trophy.”
