Eisteddfod all about the music this week

THE 44th Gladstone City Eisteddfod continues this week, with the focus soundly on music.

Sunday's program featured contestants in the vocal solo section of the event, with items from musical theatre, modern songs and classical solos.

Choral pieces continued into Sunday evening with sacred items, folk songs and classical songs.

Monday's session, again with the focus on music, included musical theatre duos, sacred and classical solos, songs from stage, show, film or musical for groups of four or more singers.

Six schools took part in the school choirs section, presenting two contrasting pieces.

Solos will continue on Tuesday, along with school choirs singing scared music plus folk songs and songs from musical theatre, stage shows or films.

The eisteddfod will take a break for the rest of the week before the dancing program opens on Sunday, when competitors will perform in ballet, tap, jazz and other forms of dance.

Dance will continue right through the week, finishing up on Friday evening with the last of the championship events.

All performances are held in the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre, and members of the public are welcome to attend.
