26th St Cecilia Youth Scholarships

After not being held last year because of covid, the 26th St Cecilia Youth Scholarships Annual Finalists' Concert was held last Sunday/Sunday 5 December in the beautiful surrounds of St Bernards Church at Batehaven. From 34 entries in the auditions, twelve finalists were selected by the adjudicator for the awards and they performed to great acclaim in front of a very appreciative audience of well over one hundred and fifty. "The standard of music performed at the concert by the young musicians was certainly as high as ever",said the committee president, Mr Chris Heazlewood. "And we are very appreciative of the generous donations by Moruya CWA, Batemans Bay Rotary, Eurobodalla Shire Council, South Coast Music Society, PerFex and generous individual donors which allows such a worthwhile organisation to help such wonderful young musicians", said Chris.
