Returning: Carols by Candlelight

By David Knox on December 8, 2013 / Filed Under Programming 9

2013-12-07_2248David Campbell will co-host Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight for the first time, alongside Lisa Wilkinson.

The performers include Anthony Callea, Marina Prior, Denis Walter, Silvie Paladino, David Hobson, Tim Campbell, and The Voice’s Harrison Craig, Rachel Leahcar and Darren Percival.

More names are yet to be announced.

“For me, it’s truly been a privilege each occasion I’ve been asked to take part in this very special event. Co-hosting with Lisa will make this Carols the best yet for me,” Campbell said.

“There’s something magical about looking out across the Bowl and seeing a sea of candles swaying in unison while the combined choirs are singing the Hallelujah Chorus,” Wilkinson said.

8:30pm Tuesday December 24 on Nine.
