Tintern impresses at Waverley Eisteddfod
Isaac Hong in Year 7 (pictured with his medal) recently competed in the 12-16 Years Woodwind/Brass Solo section of the Waverley Eisteddfod, performing a solo work on clarinet. He placed a very noteworthy second place in the section. Congratulations, Isaac!
Congratulations, also, to our Senior Girls Chamber Choir who last week performed in the Chamber Choir section at the Waverley Eisteddfod at Robert Blackwood Hall, Monash University.
The choir had some stiff competition among the other 10 choirs from such schools as Huntingtower School, The Knox School, Toorak College, Our Lady of Sion College, Mount Waverley Secondary College and Rowville Secondary College. The adjudicator was very complimentary about the bright tone of the choir and the lovely shaping of their phrases. It was a great pleasure to the girls when they were awarded an Honourable Mention for their performance, just being pipped at the post for a top three placing.
