In 2017 The John Allison & Sydney Eisteddfod Piano Scholarship Final will once again take place in the Recital Hall West at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. As the premier Piano event of the Festival, it is a pleasure for both Sydney Eisteddfod and finalists to be able to present their performances in such an esteemed venue.
In addition to the Sydney Conservatorium, two new venues will join the Festival this year as venue partners for various Piano events. The Packer Theatre at Ascham School and Playfair Hall (BH Travers Centre) at Shore School will also be utilised for a range of events across June, July and August.
Sydney Eisteddfod wishes to extend their thanks to the Lane Cove - Mowbray Anglican Church, which will generously hold the Sydney Eisteddfod Alf & Pearl Pollard Memorial Instrumental Awards for Performance Excellence again in 2017.
Sydney Eisteddfod's Piano category is a platform for budding pianists to refine their skills in a nurturing environment and it is incredibly pleasing to have these venues support in this endeavour.
