Audition for Carols by Candlelight

24 September 2015

AlburyCity has launched Carols by Candlelight 2015, which will return to its traditional home in QEII Square on Wednesday 23 December.

Applications to audition to be part of this year's Carols close on 19 October and auditions will be held on 31 October at the Albury Entertainment Centre.

Renowned Musical Director Paul Gibbs will once again lead the Carols creative team, which will select this year's crop of local talent to perform on the night.

"I know we say it every year, but we continue to unearth more brilliant new performers from our region," Gibbs said. "Carols is not limited to any particular genre, we've seen some great country, folk, operatic and more traditional performers over the years and we encourage soloists, groups and musicians to put their hand up for an audition."

AlburyCity Events Team Leader Ros Walls said that the switch back to QEII Square will provide an exciting atmosphere for the city's premier annual celebration.

"With the completion of MAMA, the Square's look and feel is different and provides a great vibe. We'll add some extra features this year and of course the scheduled date just two days before Christmas should see community spirit at its height as families prepare for their special day," Ms Walls said.
