Gunnedah Online Music Eisteddfod 2020
June 21, 2020 @ 12:00 am - July 1, 2020 @ 11:59 pm
Given the cancellation of most eisteddfods and performing arts festivals around the world this year due to COVID-19, the Gunnedah Eisteddfod Society has established Australia’s first official online eisteddfod! The Gunnedah Online Music Eisteddfod 2020 is open to competitors nation-wide, and provides an incentive for singers and instrumentalists to keep practising and performing.
In keeping with the government’s current restrictions, most sections this year are only for solo performers. We also have a great variety of special new sections for golden oldies (65+), pre-schoolers, performers with special needs, sibling duets, Indigenous Music, and the fabulous ‘Family/Household Entertainment’ section where you can get creative with everyone in your home – and be in the running to win some great prizemoney!
All competitors will receive encouraging and insightful feedback from our expert adjudicators: Paul Jarman, world-renowned musician and composer, will again adjudicate the vocal and instrumental sections; and internationally-recognised trumpet-player, Phill O’Neill, will adjudicate the brass sections.
Visit www.gunnedaheisteddfod.com.au for more information – registrations close midnight Wednesday 13 May, with video submissions due 10-21 June 2020.
