VOCAL & INSTRUMENTAL EISTEDDFOD
This annual festival allows students and adults in Zimbabwe to prepare and perform musical items, based on our syllabus, and to be adjudicated by professional musicians from outside the country.
The categories include:
mbira, marimba, other traditional instruments, and voice (solos, ensembles, and choral works)
piano, recorder, wind and brass instruments, jazz, big bands, and voice (solos, ensembles, and choral works).
The Eisteddfod is usually held in March and has been running for over 100 years, even continuing virtually despite the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, we once again returned to a physical festival and were delighted to have 1000 entries from across 80 schools. This year, we doubled the number of entries and eagerly look forward to the next Festival!
We are sincerely grateful for our sponsors and the continued use of our regular venues, and encourage you to come through and support the arts in Zimbabwe!
