School bands from across Australia demonstrated their musical talent and amazing teamwork in the 2017 Sydney Eisteddfod band events, which were held at The Concourse Concert Hall, Chatswood between Sunday 28 May and Saturday 3 June.
Anyone who has stepped foot inside The Concourse knows that it is not only a visually impressive venue but also provides magnificent acoustics for performers, helping make all performances truly memorable.
Sydney Eisteddfod strives to encourage the pursuit of music at a grass roots level and it was encouraging to see not only the number of entrants in our school band events, but the amount of effort put in by the students.
