Fresh faces of talent perform

THE musical future of Ipswich was on show at the Ipswich Civic Centre yesterday.

Some of the city's best young pianists performed at the Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod on the fourth day of the week-long event.

Musicians aged as young as nine impressed the adjudicator with performances across a range of pieces from classics to songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, in the Civic Centre's Cunningham Room.

Along with the instrumentalists a range of choral groups and glee clubs from local schools performed in the morning while vocal soloists took to the stage in the afternoon.

The eisteddfod will continue today at the Civic Centre where junior vocalists and duets will perform.
