It's still not too late... to enter the Eisteddfod competitions on Saturday, September 3 , at the 2016 North American Festival of Wales (NAFOW) in Calgary!
We again are holding three competitions in poetic recitation: Adult and Welsh Learners', both involving recitation of a set piece from memory in Welsh, as well as English Language Recitation. Copies of the set pieces are made available to competitors upon application.
On the singing side, we have a new category this year for Solo Voice (Youth), open to those aged 15 and under and sponsored by the Calgary WELSH Society. As with the equivalent adult competition, all entrants will perform at least two songs, at least one of which must be in Welsh.
In addition to the new Solo Voice (Youth) competition, we'll be holding three more singing competitions: Hymn Singing, Solo Voice (Adult, 16 and over) and Solo Voice/Semi-Professional. The Solo Voice/Semi-Professional competition, as usual, offers the David G. Morris Memorial Award with a generous cash scholarship as a first prize, for travel to compete in the 2017 National Eisteddfod of Wales.
Our competition entry form (and information sheet) is available at the NAFOW website: http://www.nafow.org/WNAA_ NAFOW/PDFs/Forms/forms2016/ eisteddfod_2016.pdf .
Anyone may enter up to three competitions total, subject to restrictions noted on the entry form and information sheet. All entries must be received by August 20, 2016 . Please contact us at any time with questions (email: email@example.com , phone: 412-215-9161 ), and we'll see you onstage in Calgary!
