Mary Hamilton was a leading soprano with DAOS when the society re-formed in 1956. She played many leading roles in the early days of the Society’s re-formation.
She then continued serving as the Assistant Secretary for many years as well as performing in the chorus. She always wanted to encourage younger members to achieve success.
The Mary Hamilton Award was instigated by Mary’s daughter as a way of keeping her name alive with the Society she loved so much. The award is given to a young member who has provided an outstanding contribution to the company.
