The 2017 Sydney Eisteddfod program will include a new event, The Wenkart Foundation Intermediate Youth Orchestra, for 19 years & under.
Open to groups of intermediate musicians, this event provides the opportunity to perform orchestral music against similar leveled competitors, as all music presented should be between Grade 2.5 to Grade 3.5 standard.
The orchestra must include strings and at least one other group of the orchestral family, such as woodwind, brass or percussion. Generously, the prizes for the event consist of $500 for First Place, $200 for Second Place and $100 for Third Place.
Sydney Eisteddfod is very excited to be offering this event and cannot wait to see all the wonderful performances later in the year.
