I am very happy to announce that this weekend I was awarded first place in the 2016 Open Category of the Ringwood Eisteddfod. Thanks to Mark Dipnall, Ruth Hawkins and the rest of the Ringwood Eisteddfod committee for hosting this competition which is a fantastic opportunity for young performers to play to an audience and meet other classical guitarists. Thanks also to the adjudicator, Clinton Eldridge, for his kind words and feedback on my performance.
Well done to my competitors, who all played really well and made a great final!
As the winner of the OPEN category I have been invited to perform at the OPEN Winners Ringwood Eisteddfod and Ringwood Aria Final on July 16 at the Karralyka Centre Theatre where we will compete for $2000 first place. Wish me luck!
