Best of eisteddfod on tonight

THE Dalby Eisteddfod has all but finished, with hundreds of performers passing through the Great Hall at Dalby State High School in hopes of being recognised for their talent.

The categories were incredibly varied, ranging from folk singing and hymns to piano solos and open performances for adults.

Tanya Wittmann, who has decades of musical experience running karaoke events, working as a DJ and performing musical theatre, got great feedback on Saturday.

After performing a duet with her daughter, and lending her voice to the Highly Commended Combined Reconciliation Choir, it was time for her to sing alone.

She won the modern/popular song solo in the open category, with a stirring rendition of “Foolish Games”, which was dubbed “the performance of the eisteddfod” as she was presented the award by adjudicator Janelle Davis.

Younger performers also shone on the day, with Rachel Redlich (who starred as Miss Hannigan in Annie last year) winning the Vocal Championship for 10-12-year-olds for the last time.

There are too many incredible performances to list here, but it is not too late to see them for yourself.

Tonight, a special, Selected Winners concert will be held at the Great Hall at DSHS, starting from 7pm.
