Christmas celebrations begin for many families with the annual Carols By Candlelight in Maitland Park. Each year over 3000 people bring their picnic baskets to enjoy the music and to celebrate the start of the holiday season.
For the Carols by Candlelight Committee, preparations for 2019 began at the beginning of the year and now we can announce some of our plans for this year’s event.
We have some amazing local and Perth based talent lined up for the stage in the park.
Our headline acts this year is AViiDA.
Paula Parore and Clay Darius formed AViiDA in 2014 and since then haven’t looked back. Both accomplished soul, R&B and blues singers in their own right, coming together as both a musical and life partnership has taken them on a journey that has given their individual and collective vocal styles a new energy.
A powerhouse duo, the pair have a varied list of local, national and International performing credits to their name, both on the theatrical and musical stage. Most recently they have starred in 2 seasons of We Will Rock You, and are currently appearing in the WA Season of CATS The Musical.
They both regularly perform in some of the best venues around Perth, and are in high demand for Corporate Events and Festivals across Australia and New Zealand
The main music will be provided by very own Geraldton City Band who will play all the classic Christmas tunes you all know and love.
This year the Carols By Candlelight theme is Unwrapping Hope. Christmas can be a tough time for people in our community however we want people to feel the joy that music can bring.
Come along and support the Carols By Candlelight on Sunday 15 December in Maitland Park.
