A BUDD BUDDING young violinist will get inspiration from a children’s opera after winning the Townsville Bulletin colouring competition.
Emillee Hall, 8, had her artwork judged the best by Australian Festival of Chamber Music artistic director Piers Lane.
“I was really excited because I love colouring and drawing said.
Emillee has won a family pass to the Australian Festival of Chamber Music family concert Brundibar ( Bumblebee) next Saturday at Townsville Civic Theatre, a family pass to Magnetic Island thanks to Sealink and a $ 100 cash prize.
“I’ve never been to Magnetic Island at home,” she before so I’m excited to go swimming,” Emillee said.
Emillee’s dad Peter said his daughter loved playing the violin at school. “This will be a really good experience for her and I’m hoping with the AFCM she will get inspiration to keep playing,” he said.
