By David Salazar

The Sydney Eisteddfod has launched two campaigns to ensure that, despite canceling its annual edition due to the COVID-19 crisis, the event will continue providing opportunities for a wide range of artists.

To this effect the Australian company will be showcase its virtual concert series “Stay Connected,” which will feature two to three performances per week throughout the entire month of May. The first of these concerts will feature 12-year-old singer and harpist Isabel Young. There will also be performances by 18-year-old dancer James Ewens and 2019 Singer of the Year Winner, Siobhan Lynch, 19.

On Wednesday, May 13, the company will present an A Capella concert featuring vocal group Vocalocity.

The company has also launched “Stage At Home,” a campaign in which artists can submit recordings of themselves performing what would have been their competition piece.
