8 September and 15 September 2019

Our adjudicator will be Helen Kasztelan. 

We hope to see you there!

 The Pianoforte Section of the Eisteddfod is held over two weekends in September at the  Kingston Arts Centre in Moorabbin. You will perform in an intimate theatre, which is used  regularly for professional performances and also for V.C.E. performance examinations.

 The Kingston Arts Centre has its own Kawai Grand Piano.

     Please Note 2019 Di Bresciani Senior Scholarship has a maximum of 30 entrants.










 The Pianoforte Eisteddfod aims to provide a friendly and caring environment where our  young pianists can gain confidence in their performance skills and develop their talents.

 It is run by a small committee assisted by some wonderful volunteers who are dedicated

 to the promotion of the performing arts in our community. They want you to enjoy your  experience, so if you have any queries they will be happy to help you.


 A highly qualified adjudicator will provide you with a personal critique of your  performance. The adjudicator will give you helpful comments that will help you to  continue to develop your performance skills. Our adjudicators are themselves professional  performers, teachers and examiners and most competed in eisteddfods themselves when  they were young.

 You will notice on the Pianoforte pages, and elsewhere, the wonderful support we receive  from our sponsors, who show such generous interest in our youthful performers.

 We hope you will also support them when you have the opportunity.

 The Committee, our volunteers and our sponsors hope you will enjoy your performance.
