The 2010 Fremantle Eisteddfod was a great success. It is our intention to continue to offer a program that encourages outstanding performances in all our categories.
The committee has reviewed the schedule of items and a decision has been made to combine some Piano items. Baroque and Classical have been combined as have 20th Century and Australian genres. Therefore, applicants may choose to perform a Baroque or Classical piece in those items and either a 20th Century or Australian piece in those items. The Romantic items are still available. Please note that there is only one piano solo item and applicants can choose to play any genre. To simplify our administration all items apart from those requiring selection of an AMEB curriculum piece will be classed as “under age”. Therefore, we will no longer define categories according to school levels e.g. Primary, Middle School. For duets it is required that both performers are under the specified age in the schedule. Performances that allow more than two performers must ensure that the majority of members of the group are under the specified age in the schedule. For more information refer to our “Rules and Conditions” pages.
Our intention is always to support young performers. To this end all prizes have been reviewed to remove instances of items competing for one prize. The distribution of funds across more items has resulted in some items been allocated a lesser value prize. The Trophies and Awards for 2011 are again outlined in more detail on pages 5 to 7. In addition to those provided by our donors, we again offer special awards for outstanding performances in the Recital items.
Both the Finals of the Concerti and Aria, as well as the Winners’ Concert, will provide wonderful showcases for our young musicians over the final weekend.
Please remember that the Fremantle Eisteddfod is now registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient. This means that all non-specific donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. These donations enable us to cover the costs of a varied and exciting program, and help us award prizes to deserving entrants.
On behalf of the Fremantle Eisteddfod committee, I extend our sincere thanks to our prize donors, supporters and volunteers who make the Eisteddfod possible.

We look forward to seeing and hearing you in 2011 and wish you all the best in your preparation.
