We have moved ONLINE! 

Friday 16 July 2021 

We are excited to share with you our Inaugural Online St George Instrumental Eisteddfod. 

For the past 100 years, the St George Instrumental Eisteddfod has and will always foster a safe but challenging atmosphere for the development of young people’s musical abilities for them to strive towards excellence.

With the coronavirus pandemic in New South Wales unfolding further, we have decided to place the health and safety of our competitors and their families first. As such the team have been hard at work ensuring that the competition will go ahead, but in a new and exciting format, so that you can continue to compete and improve your musical ability despite the external circumstances.

The St George Instrumental Eisteddfod will be held ONLINE. Your entry has been automatically transferred to this new format, and we’re extremely excited for you to experience it.

However, should you wish to withdraw your entry from the Eisteddfod, there is a link to a Google Form below, where you can fill out your details and a member of our team of volunteers will be in contact to help organise that. The cut-off for the withdrawal will be 5pm (Sydney time) Friday 23 July 2021, to allow us to finalise the new online program. Should we receive your withdrawal after the cut off date, you will forfeit your full refund.
