Music Week

Music Week at Davis College

Music is a vital part of the curriculum in Davis College and we have an outstanding choir that performed at the launch of Focus Ireland's Christmas campaign in Cork as well as at a host of school events. Our Light Entertainment group were placed 2nd in Ireland in last years competition and are progressing steadily again this year. A radio show is broadcast each morning this week by TY students and a range of other events are planned. Music week is dovetailing with Seachtain na Gaeilge which includes a trad workshop and a ceili. Our annual African Drumming workshop is also a favourite.

Music will also be incorporated into many subject areas over the week:
