Friends enter for fun of it
DRESSED in multicoloured frills with fruit on their heads, singing duo Brook Window and Kelly Simmers burst on to the stage at the Rockhampton Eisteddfod yesterday.
Brook, 16, and Kelly, 15, entertained the crowd in the musical comedy/music theatre duo/trio 14 and under 18 years section.
As one of nine entrants in this section, the girls performed to their version of Pollution.
Brook said they were excited about performing for the first time together.
"We are best friends, that's why we are doing it together,'' the Rockhampton Grammar School student said.
"This is a fun section and we love the fun of performing.
"I only changed partners a few weeks ago, but we muck around singing together all the time.
"I have been singing since I was seven and I enter in every section of the eisteddfod I can for my age.''
Kelly said that this year was her first singing in the eisteddfod.
"But I have always performed in the violin section in previous years.
"We both want to do music as a career ? I play violin and Brook is interested in opera singing.''
Both girls wish to further their career in singing and will be performing in more eisteddfod events over the coming weeks.
