Condobolin Community Centre Cushion Concert

Condobolin's young talent was on display at the recent Cushion Concert.

An incredible selection of young musical talent was on display recently at the Condobolin Community Centre’s Cushion Concert.

With the majority of students performing with either a guitar or piano, the 50 plus audience were treated to songs ranging in classical rock numbers to lazy Louisiana blues and original compositions.

An initiative of the Lachlan Arts Council, Cushion Concerts have once again become a regular occurrence following an extended hiatus.

Project coordinator at Western Plains Regional Development, Heather Blackley, said the concerts were stopped due to a lack young people interested in learning about music.

“Children just weren’t picking up musical interests for some reason so we stopped the concerts for a few years,” she said.

“Now we’ve seen a resurgence with lots of children wanting to learn music so we decided to start the concerts up again.

“I think this is due to the increased popularity of new music technology like Youtube and iPhones.

Heather said most of the students who performed on Saturday had been learning for approximately twelve months prior to the concert. D. Geiger
