Sir Andrew Davis


EQ is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Sir Andrew Davis.

Sir Andrew was a generous supporter of the EQ initiative. In February 2019, he joined our audition panels in Toronto, alongside Barbara and EQ alumni Simon Rivard and Sir Andrew also gave his time and insights in Q&A sessions which mentored all those who auditioned. In 2020 he invited four artists (Charles Sy, Jenavieve Moore, Trevor Eliot Bowes and Jillian Bonner) to join the Toronto Symphony Orchestra under his direction for Mozart’s ‘Requiem’. 

Sir Andrew was very special to Barbara and to EQ. May he rest in peace.
