Hally Davidson, a National Merit Commended Scholar and avid musician, began playing flute and piano at age 7. Hally has studied under Carl Hall for six years and periodically with Christina Smith, both members of the Atlanta Symphony. After four seasons with the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, Hally considers playing under Maestro Flint the highlight of her high school experiences.
Over the last 11 years, Hally has received several awards. She has been heard nationwide on NPR’s From the Top! and is a Coca-Cola Artist-in-Residence for Atlanta Public Schools. Additionally, Hally has won the Atlanta Flute Club’s Young Artist Competition, Cumming Rising Stars Concerto Competition, Atlanta Music Club Competition, Atlanta J.S. Bach Competition, Buckhead Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition, and Hilton Head Concerto Competition. She has been principal flutist at All-State for five years.
Hally has enjoyed playing in small ASYO ensembles at the Arthur Blank offices, Delta Headquarters, the International Monetary Fund Reception, Atlanta Symphony’s Board of Directors Meeting, and Atlantic Station.
This fall, Hally plans to pursue music and biology at Agnes Scott College under their presidential scholarship. Hally looks forward to continuing her volunteer work with elementary students through the program she has written, Classical Music and the Trivium.
