Local kids do well in Cairns Eiesteddfod
“AN essential part of students’ musical education” is how vocal teacher Alteouise DeVaughn describes the Cairns and District Junior Eisteddfod and seven of her local students last weekend competed with excellent results.
Ms DeVaughn said her stu- dents worked “very hard in their preparations and came through with the recognition they deserved”. Toby Jensen and Angela Brischetto won first prize for their duet Pie Jesus, Toby also won his Boys Vocal Solo and other minor placings, and Angela won her Character Song category.
Rochelle Johnson won her Girls Vocal Solo and received placings in other categories.
Others who performed and received placings or were highly commended were Holly Dowell, Rosa Cruz and Chelsea Gibson. Kara Gibson received excellent feedback from the Adjudicator.
“The all performed so very well,” Ms DeVaughn said.
