THE City of Whittlesea’s Carols by Candlelight on Friday will be streamed live on the internet, allowing performers and the community to connect in a COVID-safe, socially-distanced manner.

The carols will feature Mr Johnson on harp, didgeridoo player and Kuku Nyunkal man Sean Ryan, and the city’s own Whittlesea Community Choir.

The choir has worked hard to rehearse online and has recorded all the carols from their homes.

The videos were edited together to re-create the songs digitally.

Santa has sent in a video message from the North Pole especially for the carols, which Wollert residents Jim and Barb will host from their lounge room.

The event will be live-streamed at 7.30pm on Friday.
