Singing contests. I am missing my 1996 NSPACS and WAMYF programmes which is a pity as I only remember one class I entered for NS.

1995 NSPACS:

Class 242 Solo from Light Opera, Musical Comedy or Gilbert and Sullivan (in costume) 16 and under 20 years. (Acting and Singing to be Judged) Winner to receive the Donnell Cup and $30, Second $15, Third $5. Prizes donated by Mr and Mrs K Donnell.

I  was entry 8 and sang Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again in my very first ever costume and won 🙂 I still have the main part of the costume as a reminder of what can be done 🙂

Class 239 Sacred Solo: 18 and under 20 years. Own Selection. Bethlehem Down (I thought I got a commended or highly commended)

Class 237 National Song: ditto, ditto. There Was a lad Was Born in Kyle

Class 238: Ballad: ditto, ditto. Stuttering Lovers
