Henry McGroder wins scholarship at Eisteddfod Awards

Henry McGroder, from Newcastle Waldorf School, performed in three of the Taree Eisteddfod classical piano sections in May this year. He played a piece composed by his teacher Andrew Chubb, Waltz no.4. He also played the Arabesque no.1 by Debussy and Nocturne in F minor op 55 by Chopin – all three were delightful performances and highly praised by the adjudicator. He then won the Smiles Scholarship which is awarded by the adjudicator to a promising performer to assist with their future studies, only two scholarships were handed out on the day.
