Young Talent in spotlight

There was an air of excitement at the Wehl Street Theatre for the running of the 2022 Mount Gambier Eisteddfod Choral and Vocal Division.

Choral and Vocal was not able to run for two years during to COVID lockdowns and all were so eager to get back onto stage and perform.

Melbourne adjudicator Melissa Langton presided over the three day competition which consisted of two sessions of Choral works and also soloists, ranging from under 8 years to adult sections.

She was most impressed with the quality of the community and school choirs and said it had been some time since she had the pleasure of adjudicating choirs.

The Lions Club of Mount Gambier Encouragement Award for a younger competitor showing high potential went to Kiahna Little of Mount Gambier and the Lakes Rotary ‘Blue Lake Fun Run” scholarship went to Maixence Williams of Port McDonnell.

A song and dance section was introduced several years ago and this allow contestants to once again perform the item they learnt for the dance division, this time with emphasis being placed on the singing rather than the dance.
