Press Release: Padstow Heights songbird to compete in final round of the Sydney Eisteddfod Singer of the Year title

29 August 2014

Sydney-born Olivia Karantzounis has always had a desire to express herself creatively and, discovered early that by sharing her music, she could reach out to people in a special way. She began singing in church at a young age. She loved singing songs of praise, but soon soon developed additional passions for Blues, Jazz, Soul, R&B and Musical Theatre.

Throughout her schooldays, Olivia was constantly involved with choirs, musicals, acting and dancing activities. Now studying for a Bachelor of Music Theatre at the Australian Institute of Music in Surry Hills, she regards her passion for singing as a calling from God and is intent on learning, experiencing and performing as much as possible as she strives to establish herself in the music industry.

The final of the Sydney Eisteddfod Junior Singer of the Year will take place at Petersham RSL Club on Tuesday, 9 September at 6.30pm and the final Sydney Eisteddfod Senior Singer of the Year is included in the evening’s program. Tickets costing $25 (adult) and $20 (concession) can be booked online at or by phoning (02) 9261-8366.
