Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod 2019
The Latrobe Valley Eisteddfod is an annual major arts event spanning five and a half weeks in August and September each year. It covers the whole range of performing arts disciplines involving the singing voice, speech, piano, instrumental and dance. People travel from outside of the Gippsland region to participate, particularly in the brass bands competition.
Each year, the Eisteddfod gives some 4000 performers who have come from the local community and from throughout Gippsland and the wider community a chance to showcase their talents and experience performing before live audiences. From this performance the contestants receive an appraisal of their work given by highly qualified adjudicators. This critique is invaluable in the development of their talents. They also have a chance of being a recipient of part of more than $30,000 offered in awards and prizes, much of which goes towards continuing their studies in their chosen fields.
