SOME of Ipswich's finest young instrumentalists were on stage at the Silkstone Eisteddfod piano and instrumental section yesterday.

The third day of the eisteddfod, which began on Saturday, saw ensembles from schools from across the region perform at the Glebe Road Ipswich Uniting Church hall.

Ranging from beginners instrumental ensembles to duo and trio woodwind performances the eisteddfod was a showcase for some of Ipswich's finest talent.

The section saw bands from schools including Lowood State School concert band, the Karalee Station School string ensemble and the St Joseph's flute choir.

The piano and instrumental section is the first part of the Silkstone Eisteddfod before the vocal and speech and drama performers take to the stage.

The final day of the piano and instrumental section will be held tomorrow with further ensemble performances including the open age orchestral ensemble performances in the morning while solo woodwind performances will be held in the evening.

The Silkstone Eisteddfod is one of the longest running eisteddfods in Ipswich, with the first event held in 1926.
