CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT TONIGHT
FOR the first time in almost three decades, the sweet sound of handbells will ring throughout the Darwin Amphitheatre as part of tonight’s Carols by Candlelight.
Led by program coordinator and choral conductor Nora Lewis AM, the handbell ensemble hope to deliver a stellar performance for Darwinites tonight after months of rehearsals.
“I’ve arranged this item especially to include the bells, so we’re hoping all of our hard work will pay off on the night,” Ms Lewis said.
Stage manager Mike Foley said the handbells would be a welcome addition.
“We haven’t had the handbells for around 27 years so it’s very special to have them back,” he said.
Mr Foley has been involved with the event for well over 10 years and said he loved seeing the community get together to celebrate Christmas.
“It’s a great community event and the amount of time that the performers and musicians give to put on the best show of the year is fantastic,” he said.
Territorians are encouraged to make a gold coin donation on entry which will go towards not-for-profit organisation Life Education.
