Young guns on song in eisteddfod

NEARLY 50 teenage musicians and two youth choirs took to the stage yesterday at the Ipswich Civic Centre.

The first day of the Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod saw some of the region's finest singers, some as young as 12, performing.

For Rosewood 13-year-old Tahnee Baker-Clark, the eisteddfod was a chance to improve her singing and meet people her own age with a similar passion for singing.

"I want to keep improving my singing voice and this is a great place to do it," she said.

"I really enjoy meeting so many other people at eisteddfods who all love singing as much as I do."

Tahnee, as well as 48 other solo artists, sang sacred songs yesterday with the Cambrian Youth Choir and the Ipswich Girls' Grammar School Glee club competing in the glee section.
