Vocalists in spotlight

The Mount Gambier Eisteddfod has completed another successful Choral and Vocal division.

Held at the Wehl St Theatre this year’s adjudicator was Marianne Rigby from Melbourne who described it as an “excellent event”.

Major award winners were Gabriel Strachan who won the Lakes Rotary Blue Lake Fun Run Scholarship with his self-accompanied pieces that exhibited his multi-talent, and Scarlett Strachan who won the Lions Club of Mount Gambier Under 12 Encouragement award for her performances over the three days.

A first for the competition was a delegation from Vietnam with three open performers wowing the crowd with their solos.

The producers of the Eisteddfod, Backstage Incorporated, would like to congratulate all competitors and thank the Lions/Lionesses Club of Blue Lake City for helping put forward volunteers.

Meanwhile, the Mount Gambier Eisteddfod Speech and Drama division ex-Mount Gambier resident Merry Dickins was the adjudicator.

“What a great Speech and Drama Eisteddfod we have witnessed in Mount Gambier this week,” Ms Dickins said.

“Performances from Melaleuca Park and Glenburnie were entertaining and showed developing skills are in good hands.

It was great to see the range of performances ranging from nursery rhymes to one sided debates, mimes, skits and impromptu readings and conversations through to sophisticated Shakespearean recitals.

“The Open section provided great entertainment with people composing their own work and performing in a very dramatic style.

Character recitals and impromptu performances were a highlight.”
