Winners picked to perform in concert
A LINE-UP of winners from this week's Dalby Eisteddfod sessions will be delighting audiences with their talents once again in the Concert of Selected Winners on Tuesday evening.
Piano and vocal co-ordinator for the Dalby Eisteddfod, Myf Schenk, has five children of her own and sees the many ways music and performing in the Dalby Eisteddfod can benefit a child's life.
"The smiles on their faces as they're performing on stage really does make all the hard work worthwhile,” Mrs Schenk said.
"Music has proven itself to have so many benefits to a child's brain development and really helps them in all their other subjects.
"The eisteddfod is just a culmination of all of that, and all the hard work everyone has put in.”
Vocal adjudicator Barbara Broom had a tough time selecting a winner in Thursday morning's Concert Item for Years Prep and Under.
"We enjoyed it tremendously and well done to all the teachers,” Mrs Broom said.
"I would like to congratulate all of you, and all the results were very close,” she said.
Eventually though, Our Lady of the Southern Cross College Prep Red group were awarded first place with their rendition of 'I Can't Spell Hippopotamus'.
Dalby Eisteddfod president Carolyn Tillman said she hopes the earlier start time of 6pm will encourage everyone to stay for the entire concert program.
"We've made the concert earlier this year so people can stay until the end,” she said.
"The little ones often miss the wonderful older performers so hopefully that won't happen this year.”
The Dalby Eisteddfod Concert of Selected Winners will be presented on Tuesday, June 13 at 6pm at the Great Hall.
Entry will cost $5 for adults, $3 for concessions, and $12 for families.
