Wagga school students took to the stage for the 98th annual City of Wagga Music Eisteddfod.
Bands and ensembles performed their numbers in front of fellow students and families at Joyes Hall.
Kerri Miller, South Wagga band manager, said she was proud of her students for their performance.
“They came together and their standard is coming up,” she said.
“Their song was really funky and they had a great time playing.
“It’s a great way to develop friendships between our schools and students.”
Sophie Mason, Wagga Music Eisteddfod convenor, said the organisation has been trying to promote the event as a performance opportunity in the last few years.
“It’s not meant to be stressful,” she said. “A lot of these eisteddfods have a really traditional feel and we have been working to bring it into the 21st century.
“We are 98 this year and we hope by 100 years we will an amazing, modern opportunity for kids.”
Ms Mason said being able to perform gives students a goal to work towards.
“It’s also a great way for parents to see their child’s progress,” she said.
Ms Mason encourages Wagga to come along to the final night on Friday, starting at 6pm.
