66th Annual Cowra Eisteddfod

Wed May 15 - Thu June 6

The 66th Annual Cowra Eisteddfod will be held from May 15 to June 6 – with the Grand Concert of Prizewinners being held on Saturday, June 15.

All the regular sections for Vocal, Instrumental, Speech & Drama, and Dance – in all age groups – have been catered for, and will include championships and scholarships.

A special addition to the syllabus this year is the Bruce and Margaret Weir Trust – Local Performing Arts Scholarship, valued at $3,000.

The scholarship will be open to residents of the Cowra Shire aged 13 to 20 years in any of the performing arts disciplines.

Entrants must perform in at least two sections of the eisteddfod, provide a resume setting out their achievements, ambitions, and how they would use the scholarship.

Entrants will also need to provide two adjudication reports from their performances at the 2019 eisteddfod for the judging panel.

This is an amazing opportunity for the young people of Cowra.

The Annual Meeting of the Cowra Eisteddfod was held recently and the committee for 2019 was elected.

  • President: Amanda Charnock
  • Vice Presidents: Jan Munday, Mary Ann Wright and Judy Penfold
  • Minutes Secretary: Jenny Friend
  • Correspondence Sec: Lois Foster and Cheryl McAlister
  • Treasurer: Richard Neate
  • Co-coordinators: Dance – Hayley Barker/Speech & Drama – Jenny Friend/Vocal – Mary Ann Wright/ Instrumental – Helen Johnston and Lois Foster.

The Cowra Eisteddfod is renowned with both competitors and adjudicators as being friendly and well run, catering for all standards of performances, and the wonderful support of sponsors and helpers.
