Carols Livestream 2021

Carols by Candlelight has been running for many years in the City of Whittlesea and marks the beginning of our journey towards the end of the year.

Traditionally the Carols event features our Community Carols Choir, however in recent times we have transitioned this to a Virtual Community Carols Choir in which everyone is free to participate.

The program will feature many old favourites from the Christmas repertoire as well as newer songs drawn from the rich culture of the City of Whittlesea’s many residents. We might also get an insight into some of the customs and traditions that people have at this time of year and how we can feel connected together in a spirit of celebration.

Participation in the choir will be by home recording, simple instructions and guide tracks will be available from this page soon.

If you would like to receive direct information about Carols and being part of the choir, click this link and leave us your email address.

We look forward to celebrating this great time of year with a warm and inclusive event.
