WITH Christ­mas only four weeks away Bright Singers have be­gun spread­ing fes­tive cheer.

On Satur­day the group made their way around Myrtle­ford singing Christ­mas Car­ols to pro­mote three up­com­ing con­certs.

The Bright Singers’ Christ­mas Con­certs have been a reg­u­lar oc- cur­rence in Bright for more than 15 years.

More re­cently they’ve also taken place in Mt Beauty while this De­cem­ber will see the group’s first hol­i­day per­for­mance in Myrtle­ford.

Bright Singers mem­ber Beth Reed said group mem­bers al­ways looked for­ward to this time of year.

“We all re­ally en­joy do­ing the Christ­mas Car­ols, it’s some­thing that we’ve done in Bright for as long as I’ve been in the group which is 16 years,” she said.

“In Bright we hold the con­cert at the Art Gallery which is where we prac­tice, and usu­ally get 90100 peo­ple come along.

“Some of those in the au­di­ence join in singing and it’s just a lovely evening of beau­ti­ful Christ­mas Car­ols and some­thing we’re look- ing for­ward to shar­ing with the peo­ple of Myrtle­ford now too.”

The first of the three con­certs will be held in Myrtle­ford this Satur­day at the Unit­ing Church from 4pm with Bright’s an­nual per­for­mance to take place the fol­low­ing night at 8pm.

Mt Beauty’s Christ­mas Con­cert will be in the town’s Com­mu­nity Hall the fol­low­ing week­end on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9.
