Congratulations to our star singer staff member, Marika!
Marika Landy, our IT Technical Officer at St Edmund’s Secondary, Dover, is an Independent Woman with many talents. She finds joy and harmony with singing and recently entered a competition at the Thanet Music and Drama Festival, winning three of her classes!
The Thanet Music and Drama Festival was founded as a charity in 1921, and each year offers a platform for hundreds of amateur musicians, actors and dancers in and around the Thanet area to perform in front of an audience and gain expert critical advice.
The festival consists of five sections (Instrumental, Speech & Drama, Piano, Dance, Vocal & Choral) and is held in February to March every year, culminating in an Award Ceremony & Gala Concert featuring some of the best performances from all sections.
Marika is an ex-pupil of St Edmund’s and has been a staff member at the school for the last 4 years. Her many hobbies include long distance running, karate, stage combat and Marika is also an aspiring Classical and Opera singer, often supporting the school music faculty, performing in school masses and events.
A huge congratulations to Marika on her well-deserved success!
