A hugely successful 2022 Cowra Eisteddfod concluded at the Cowra Civic Centre last Saturday night with the Concert Of Major Prize Winners.

The concert is a regular item of the annual Cowra Eisteddfod, and aims to showcase the best talent of the eisteddfod from its three weeks of competition.

This year’s concert featured some amazing talent, and culminated in the presentation of the Alma Hopkins Trophy for the Most Entertaining Act and the Weir Trust Scholarship.

Local dancer Elias Richens took out the Alma Hopkins Trophy, with a spectacular jazz dance performance that saw him cover all styles of jazz dancing in the genres history, from Charlie Chaplain, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, to the modern era.

Fellow local dancer Destiny Pepper took out the Weir Scholarship. As a singer as well, she competed in both the vocal and dancing categories of this year’s eisteddfod.

Cowra Eisteddfod Vice President Jan Munday said the calibre of talent at this year’s eisteddfod was remarkable.

“The talent was exceptionally high,” she said.

“We nearly had a full house at the Civic Centre for the concert and it ran for about 2 hours.”

“We had great support from all of our com-petitors and sponsors.”“I’d like to especially thank our three major sponsors, the Calleen Trust, the Farleigh Trust and the Weir Trust for their continued sponsorship of the eisteddfod.”

Jan also thanked Marc McLeish for being the MC of Saturday’s concert, and all other minor sponsors for the role they played in making this year’s event a success.
