Eisteddfods encourage children and adults of amateur status to further their skills and to have their works tested by skilful, highly qualified adjudicators and the annual Lismore Eisteddfod is well underway.
The Vocal and Instrumental Program of the 107th Annual Competition of the Lismore Musical Festival Society finished yesterday at the Lismore Workers Club.
The adjudicator this year was the conductor, pianist and singer Miguel Wu, who came down from Brisbane for the event, and provided some wonderfully constructive criticism for the young musicians after they performed.
The 2019 Lismore Eisteddfod is already proving to be a great event and anticipation is rising for the popular dance section.
Schools Week starts on August 26 and the Dance Competition begins on September 3, with the Troupes on September 7 and 8 followed by the Spoken Word competition on September 14.
In response to requests for the addition of a Musical Theatre Section, the Lismore Musical Festival Society has decided to trial a section for this year involving a dance to any song from a musical either from stage or screen.
The Lismore Eisteddfod is open to the public, for more information visit: https://lismoreeisteddfod.com.au/
