Music section of the Gunnedah Eisteddfod under way

The music section of the Gunnedah Eisteddfod spells pianos, choirs, dance, song and instruments.

The five-day competition in the Gunnedah Town Hall involves schools, community groups and individuals.

A mash-up of the primary musical entertainment.

So far there has been plenty of fun, colour and talent on show, with adjudicator Luke Byrne praising the enthusiasm of the entrants.

On Wednesday, the music section kicked off with the Mature Aged Eisteddfod at Mackellar Care Services, followed by an instrumental section in the afternoon. 

Isobel Batley plays the cello in the instrumental section on Wednesday.

The instrumental section featured guitar solos, piano, and  instrumental solos and ballads for both primary and secondary students.

"It’s fantastic to see such a great range presented here today,” Mr Byrne said on Wednesday.

The adjudicator reminded the entrants not to “underestimate how important it is that you begin and end clearly”.

“There was so much imagination and really great characterisation,” he said following the primary music entertainment section on Thursday.
