https://sydneyeisteddfod.com.au/articles/eleanor-greenwood-wins-the-2015-sydney-eisteddfod-mcdonalds-operatic-aria

So so thrilled Ellie!! Congratulations!!!!!!

I rember a certain conversation where Eleanor said to me " You never told me it would be this hard!"

Ellie  never gave up on her goal! She worked like a trooper and I know will continue to work and and dedicate herself to the lifelong learning journey that is to be a singer!  She surrounded herself with mentors, coaches and teachers over the years who are thrilled to be able to guide her and I am truly proud of Eleanor Greenwood.
