After more than 470 performances throughout nine days, the music component of this year’s Albury Wodonga Eisteddfod finished with singing
The primary school choir sections completed the music program on Thursday, with the competition held in the Albury Entertainment Centre’s banquet hall this year.
Music co-ordinator Faith Casley-Porter said the change allowed parents with prams to join the audience, unlike in the main theatre where prams weren’t permitted.
“It was a bit more of a relaxed environment,” she said.
“It allowed us to have a bit more open space for the audiences, it flowed really well. We had a full house for the morning session.”
Mrs Casley-Porter said Wednesday’s community night of all-age choirs and vocal ensembles also attracted a good audience.
“We had increased participation from the community groups as well this year, which was wonderful,” she said.
The co-ordinator thanked all the volunteers who helped at the eisteddfod.
The 17-day festival of dance, music, speech and drama and debating concludes on Saturday with the highland dancing sections.
Competition begins at 10.30am in front of adjudicator Fiona Borcherds, who has also judged at the World Championships in Scotland and the ScotDance Canada Championships.
