Theatre alive with the sound of choir music
THE theatre was alive with children's voices on Tuesday as school choirs from around the region performed at the 44th Gladstone City Eisteddfod.
More than 40 performances including school groups and individuals graced the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre.
Gladstone West State School students Kaitlyn Duckham, Emily Willard and Flynn Geddes were excited as they prepared for their choir's performance.
Asked why she likes to sing, Kaitlyn admitted gleefully she loved the attention.
"It's fun because everybody is watching me," she said. "I like being the centre of attention on a stage."
Flynn is a first-time choir singer - one of a handful of boys involved.
"I never really thought I'd be a singer, but I like it now," the 12-year-old said. "I'll never go to The X-Factor though."
Emily said she loves singing, "no matter how much dad tells me to stop".
The group was confident they could come away winners.
