The Concourse Concert Hall is not only a visually grand venue, it also provides stunning acoustics for the Sydney Eisteddfod Band events. It was this magical combination and rich atmosphere that made this year memorable for all our aspiring musicians.
Sydney Eisteddfod pays particular interest in encouraging musical talent at a grass roots level and it was fabulous to see not only the number of entrants in our school band events, but the amount of effort put in by the students.
