Fanny Davies Music Festival 2022

The annual Fanny Davies Music Festival was held across two days on 21st and 22nd March. With this year being the first year that allowed for music to be performed with the same vigour as before lockdown, it was brilliant to see so many girls take to the stage and showcase their talents. There was a terrific turnout from the Lower School, for whom it was the first “proper” Fanny Davies Festival for Year 7, 8 and 9, who were also able to enjoy some inspiring music-making from the older girls. The participants commented on how much they enjoyed playing and singing for a live audience, which was comprised of various students and staff. There were some incredibly powerful performances and the level of musical talent in the school has soared drastically, but it is no match to the absolute joy on the girls’ faces as they performed – which, of course, is the most important thing. One thing that many of the staff said was the most heart-warming aspect of the festival was the pure love and support the girls showed each other when they performed as soloists and in ensembles.
