Music Festival 2020 – People’s Choice Award

This week, Mornane House celebrated the unveiling of the inaugural People’s Choice Award for Music Festival. The plaque has been hung in the Mornane House area on Level 2 of the GBC. Arabella King, the Mornane House Conductor shares with us a short reflection on this historic moment.

“I am incredibly proud of Mornane for being the first House ever to win the People’s Choice Award, despite all the challenges 2020 has thrown at us. I will admit that when Ms O’Dwyer first told the conductors about the virtual plan for Music Fest, I was a little skeptical, but the result was beyond anything I could have imagined. On the night, I was absolutely blown away by the phenomenal sound of Mornane as the girls were all brought together virtually. Such an incredible sound was only possible due to the girls’ dedication through Zoom choir sessions and the endless hours the ICT crew and Ms O’Dwyer put into producing the ‘couch choir’.

Music Festival is such an important event in the Loreto community and I am so glad that we were still able to celebrate everyone’s hard work this year.  I couldn’t have asked for a better performance of ‘Warriors’, and I’m overjoyed to know that the audience enjoyed the performance as much as I did.”
