It's NOT too late to enter... you can still join us onstage for the Eisteddfod at NAFOW!
We will have six competitions in singing and poetic recitation, all offering cash prizes, on Saturday, September 5 , at the Hyatt Regency Columbus. For recitation, two competitions (Adult and Welsh Learner's) involve reciting a poem from memory in Welsh, and English Language Recitation is on offer as well. Hymn Singing involves singing one hymn of your choice in Welsh, while Solo Voice involves singing two pieces, at least one of which must be in Welsh.
Our signature competition (Solo Voice/Semi-Professional) offers the David G. Morris Memorial Award, a generous cash scholarship for travel to compete in the 2016 National Eisteddfod of Wales. This competition is for singers (residents of the Americas) with some professional training but whose income is derived only partially from performing; many of our winners have gone on to great success in competing in Wales.
All of our competitions involve highly qualified adjudicators who provide a very friendly and supportive atmosphere in which to display and develop your own talent in recitation or singing. You will make wonderful new acquaintances, and everyone leaves with the satisfaction of maintaining a great Welsh tradition on behalf of all of North America!
