THE Brolga Theatre was filled with sweet sounds as the Maryborough Eisteddfod continued on Wednesday.

Vocal and choral adjudicator Jessica O'Bryan travelled from Brisbane to judge the Fraser Coast songbirds.

Ms O'Bryan, a singing teacher at the Queensland Conservatorium, said it was her first time adjudicating in Maryborough.

"The kids are really engaged and excited to be here," she said.

"I think it's always good to see talent emerging from the regions."

Maryborough Eisteddfod president Irene Smith said this year's event was really good.

Ms Smith said she competed in eisteddfods as a child until her mother played the wrong note on a piano.

"I walked out," she said.

Ms Smith said her favourite thing about the eisteddfod was watching young performers grow.

"The thing I love most is seeing the emerging talent in the children as they grow over the years," she said.
