THE Playhouse Theatre was alive with the sound music as the Bundaberg Music Eisteddfod wrapped up the week on a high note.

Bundaberg Eisteddfod president Leanne Hutchings said the concert on Friday night was a fantastic celebration of the musical talent within the region.

Mrs Hutchings said about 120 people packed the theatre.

"It was a very entertaining week with a high standard of performances," she said.

"Our adjudicators were very impressed not only with the students but with the venues as well,"

Mrs Hutchings said about 800 students performed a variety of acts including sections in piano, woodwind, brass, strings, small ensembles, choirs and large instrumental ensembles.

"That includes concert bands, jazz bands and orchestras," she said.

Mrs Hutchings said the eisteddfod provided the older students, particularly those in Year 12, with a unique opportunity to receive constructive feedback from professional adjudicators.

Students were able to perform before a live audience.

"They can take this experience with them when they audition," she said.

"And the state schools have a Fanfare gig this year, which is a state-wide competition for the bands to enter."
