Eyes on the prize
Monday, 22nd August, 2011
The city’s aspiring singers took to the stage yesterday on the second day of the 42nd annual Broken Hill Eisteddfod.
Performers sang in a range of different categories including own song choice, character song, duet and group at the Eisteddfod held at the Civic Centre.
The “pop stars” category was held in the afternoon and then the teenage singers took to the stage later in the day.
The Eisteddfod’s Merrilyn Podnar also told the BDT that the piano competition on Saturday night was very high standard.
“The piano competitors from Mildura we had were really good, really entertaining,” Ms Podnar said.
A local girl, Chloe Vella, won the prize for the most outstanding pianist.
The Adjudicator Bill Broughton was “very, very impressed with her,” Ms Podnar said.
Committee member Sue-Ellen Rudd said the performers gave it their all.
“They try hard and that’s the main thing and they have a good time,” Ms Rudd said.
Today the school choirs will perform at the Civic Centre followed by the last of the instrumental performers.
