John Lamble AO
A much admired and respected former Chairman of Sydney Eisteddfod, John Lamble is also one of its most generous and enthusiastic supporters. He sponsors The John Lamble Foundation Australasian Choral Championship for Youth Choirs, along with numerous other events.
"I particularly sponsor the choirs who work as a group to produce beautiful music, but whether it is a prepared speech, a ballet dancer or a pianist, all of those things are part of the performing arts and I love to see them participate and really enjoy watching them.
"There are 35,000 people who perform at Sydney Eisteddfod each year and some of those will be future stars. It's great to encourage those few, but I'd also like to think about the 34,900 participants who have worked hard to improve themselves. It's the great number of people that I want to encourage, as well as the stars.
"I don't think you can be associated with Sydney Eisteddfod without being enthused by everyone involved with it. So many people give of their time and to see the opportunities for children and adults to perform and do their best, is very rewarding and wonderful to watch."
If you believe in the positive impact that participation in the performing arts has on the lives of Australians and the need for performance opportunities, please consider making a donation to Sydney Eisteddfod.
