NSYO Symphony Sydney Eisteddfod – 13 June 2012

Posted 20 May 2012

Dear symphony musicians and parents,

As you may be aware, we are planning to attend this year’s Sydney Eisteddfod on Wednesday, 13 June, a normal rehearsal day.

We have been given an appearance time at 5:30pm at the Congress Hall, Salvation Army, 140 Elizabeth Street, Sydney.

To make it easier for participants, the committee is looking to book a bus to and from the venue leaving Beecroft primary school at 4:00pm. There will be a small charge for the transport.

As this is a normal rehearsal day, we do expect that everybody will be able to attend. Remember the larger the orchestra the more impressive the sound to the judges.

Could you please confirm your attendance to David Griffin, Norizah Kelly or myself NO LATER THAN 30 MAY 2012.
