Hawkesbury Eisteddfod 2017 awarded top young performers in the region

THE Hawkesbury Eisteddfod has been wrapped-up for another year and publicity officer Kaylie Neave wanted to congratulate all the children who showcased their talents on-stage at the Windsor Function Centre from July through to September.

There were dance solos and dance troupes, instrumental solos, school bands, school and HSC dances, piano solos, speeches, speaking choirs, school choral groups and vocal solos.

Ms Neave also runs a business in Riverstone called Making Musicians, and a number of her students competed in the Piano section of the Eisteddfod.

“I would like to congratulate all my students on their excellent results at this year’s Hawkesbury Eisteddfod. All the students were competing in the Piano section for the first time. I am so incredibly proud of them!” she told the Gazette.

The Hawkesbury Eisteddfod has now been running for 66 years. It provides an opportunity for young dancers, singers, musicians, and actors to practise and perfecting their pieces, and showcase their talent on the stage.
