THE COLAC Music Teachers Association is encouraging music fans to support the district’s future music stars at Colac’s annual eisteddfod tomorrow.

The day-long eisteddfod at Colac Otway Performing Arts and Cultural Centre will include about 140 musicians from Colac, Camperdown, Timboon and surrounding areas.

Pianists will feature in the morning, vocalists and choirs are on display in the afternoon and instrumentalists will perform in the evening.

Judges Shannon Ebeling, Sonoka Miyake and Tom Healy will be adjudicators.

Prizes are on offer in each section as well as the John Radcliffe Memorial Award for a promising primary and secondary pianist.

St Mary’s Primary School music teacher Tanya Stewart said the event offered aspiring musicians valuable performing experience.

“It’s a great opportunity for students learning music to perform in front of a supportive audience and receive some constructive feedback on their performance,” she said.
