Gympie youth put on stellar show

THE 2012 Gympie and District Eisteddfod drew to a close on Friday evening at the Civic Centre after a tremendous week of talent displayed in piano, vocal, speech, and instrumental performance.

Gympie and District Eisteddfod Committee president Thelma Reisenleiter said this year's Eisteddfod was extremely successful and had been a great cultural experience for the young people involved.

"We have had many calls over the weekend thanking us for the wonderful cultural experience the children have had," Mrs Reisenleiter said.

Friday featured speech and vocal titles and the presentation of bursaries.

"The winners were absolutely outstanding," she said.

"They were very supportive of each other."
