Orange Eisteddfod

Had a lovely time and did well at Orange Regional Eisteddfod this year.

Stayed in a gorgeous full-sized home from AirBnB with Joelene Griffith (coloratura soprano) and Bradley Gilchrist (our pianist).

Came second in the aria prize to that wily Joelene by half a point! She sang so, so beautifully, and did part of the mad scene from Lucia di Lammermoor... crazy! I beat her in plenty of the other sections though. ;-)

Here we are, looking pleased with ourselves.
