Carols program takes shape
FOLLOWING the resurrection of Coffs Harbour’s much-loved Carols by Candlelight by local business leaders, event organiser Simon Chladil has announced a full field of family favourites for the December 18 event.
Being staged at the Coffs Harbour Racing Club, Mr Chladil said the program was shaping up as “an arrangement of firm favourites and old classics with something for everyone”.
He said entertainment would include not only the carols but also dancers, soloists, children’s entertainers The Toads, a laser spectacular, NBN’s Big Dog – and of course the Big Man – Santa.
“The program is very full already and thanks to our business community nearly all the immediate costs have been covered,” Mr Chladil said.
“We are still short a few thousand dollars so naturally if business groups out there would like to pitch in they will be most welcome. Also the Coffs City Choir is welcoming anyone who would like to join them for rehearsals.”
Now under the capable musical direction of Mei Wei Lim, the evening will also feature the St Augustine’s Primary School Choir, soprano Michelle Van der Kinderen, the Julie Ross Dancers and more.
The final program and all event details will be published in The Coffs Coast Advocate soon.
All proceeds from the evening will go to the Coffs Harbour Surf Life Saving Club.
