Stars to shine on carols night
SING along to your favourite Christmas carols at Carols By The Sea in Byron Bay tomorrow.
This traditional community event will be held in the top park opposite the Beach Hotel (if it rains it will be at the Byron Bay High School).
The carols program, run by the Byron Ministers Fellowship and directed by award-winning jazz and gospel music artist, Sharny Russell, promises to have something for everyone.
As well as the community choir on stage and everyone's favourite Christmas carols to sing along to, the program will also feature two world-class guest performers.
"Dynamic international touring children's entertainment ensemble, The Toads & The Jungle Jam Band from Coffs Harbour, will be sure to delight children with their animal costumes, whacky humour, and great audience rapport," Sharny said.
Australia's own "Angel" Mirusia will also grace the stage. Mirusia has been touring as Andre Rieu's soprano for the past five years.
Sharney said Mirusia had a magnificent voice and stage presence and would perform Andrew Lloyd-Webber's Pie Jesu with local seven-year-old Alaska Jarvis.
Byron Public School and St Finbarr's Primary will also perform. Sharny will sing with another local talent, Lani Folau.
Santa will make an appearance, and the chosen charity is World Vision's, IMPACTS.
"Bring your entire family, blankets, chairs and something to eat and enjoy a beautiful night under the open sky," Sharny said.
Flameless candles will be available to purchase and the event starts at 6.30pm.
