WHY ENTER THE 2018 ADELAIDE EISTEDDFOD?

Performance experience

Irrespective of students’ aims in music the experience of performing in public is vital.  This builds confidence, and above all, the chance to experience the enjoyment and excitement of performing.

Exams

Every competitor receives the assessment of an accomplished and independent adjudicator.  Try out and improve your programs for exams such as AMEB, ABRSM or Trinity Guildhall, and Secondary and Tertiary Level Assessments.

Audition Skills

Many aspiring professionals fail to show their best at auditions and miss study or job opportunities.  The answer is practice and the conditions at the Eisteddfod competitions are ideal for this purpose.

Performance Opportunities

The finals of the advanced competitions are held in prestigious venues.  Several musical organisations look for their soloists at the Eisteddfod competitions.

Valuable Prizes and Recognition

Prizes include certificates, vouchers, medallions, cash and a major scholarship.  All are evidence of achievements to enhance CVs.
