Since its inception in 1938, Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight has become a stalwart of Christmas tradition and has been entertaining Australians as an annual Christmas Eve celebration.
In 2019, we celebrate 60 years of performances bringing joy to thousands at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl and 40 years of live broadcasts reaching millions on the Nine Network.
Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight has over 80 years of history, supporting children who are blind or have low vision. On Christmas Eve donations will be matched by generous partners of Vision Australia to double the impact for children who are blind or have low vision and their families.
Allison Langdon will make her Carols by Candlelight debut this Christmas Eve when she joins David Campbell to co-host Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight live from the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Together they’ll welcome a star-studded lineup of artists including David Campbell, Marina Prior, Denis Walter, David Hobson, Silvie Paladino, Rob Mills, Bobby Fox, Bonnie Anderson, Christie Whelan Browne, Anthony Callea and Tim Campbell with more performers to be announced later this month.
Remarkable singer and pianist Paul Kapeleris has been announced as ambassador for this year’s event. Paul, who was born legally blind with only five per cent vision, will perform at the family event in a dream come true for the musician. Paul first made headlines on Australia’s Got Talent and now, as Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight Ambassador, will bring his joyful music to the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Christmas Eve.
Celebrate the magic of Christmas and be part of Australia’s biggest Christmas tradition.
