Nothing else heralds Christmas more than Carols by Candlelight at the Myer Music Bowl each year. C by C has been part of Melbourne for seventy-seven years and nationally since 1969 – we are proud to say NBCA has been there for twenty-eight of those years. Last Christmas there were 60 boys on stage to celebrate the season with millions of viewers around the country.
Twenty boys joined with twenty girls from the Australian Girls Choir to make up the Children’s chorus for the ‘Kids Segment’, featuring children from The Voice Kids – this part of the program is very exciting for the younger members of the audience as Santa is welcomed and farewelled on his very important international journey. The Choir’s 50th anniversary was acknowledged during the telecast, and the boys counted the clock down to midnight on the bus journey home.
