SOME of the country’s finest pianists will perform at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre in the final round of the Shoalhaven Eisteddfod piano championship.
The musicians will be competing for $4600 in prize money.
Shoalhaven Eisteddfod president George Windsor said for people to come and hear such prestigious pianists for a ticket price of $5 was unheard of.
“We invite pianists of this level because we think it’s good for our young pianists to see where they can go with it,” he said.
“The whole idea of an eisteddfod is to bring talent together, no matter where it’s from.”
“Many of the people from our eisteddfod over the last 30 years have gone on to become very successful musicians.”
He said the standards in this year’s eisteddfod had been impressive.
“We’ve had some very high standards in dance, speech, drama and in the vocal sections,” Mr Windsor said.
“Vocals were of a very high standard and you will be able to see some of them at our Stars of the Eisteddfod concert on Saturday, June 20.”
