Gold Coast Eisteddfod – Final Performances

Congratulations to our Bands across Junior, Middle and Senior School who performed so admirably in the latter half of the Gold Coast Eisteddfod during August. All conductors and accompanists were so proud of their efforts. Particular mention must be made of Big Band’s 2nd placing in the B Grade Secondary Stage Band section – an outstanding effort. Thank you to those who came along to see our musicians perform in what we are sure you appreciated was excellent company.

Congratulations must also go to other students who achieved personal bests in both Gold Coast and Beenleigh Eisteddfods, and in Somerset Festival individual performances as well. If there are any individual results that we may not be aware of, please do not hesitate to advise the music department via music@sthildas.qld.edu.au
