City of Hobart Performing Arts Eisteddfod 2022

Performance venues around Hobart have been buzzing with live music performances over the past 2 weeks with the City of Hobart Performing Arts Eisteddfod. It was wonderful to see so many students participating across all areas and in so many different categories. We are proud of all students that performed and congratulate you all for your dedication, courage, and commitment to prepare and participate in this event.

A special mention to our Collegiate Singers for winning the Year 12 and under Vocal Choir section and to Lana Kains (‘15) a Collegiate Alumni for winning the major trophies and special awards with the Operatic Aria Award, the Rob Valentine MLC Vocal Recital Award, and the Sir Basil and Lady Osborne Memorial Lieder Recital Award with Jane Edwards.

Once again, thank you and congratulations to all Collegiate students who participated.
