A TRIO of singers debuting at Albury Carols by Candlelight next week plan to take advantage of their nerves.
Kristin Walsh, 25, Courtney Newnham, 18, and Stephanie Flack, 21, say they will transform their nervous energy into their best performance when on stage on Wednesday.
“The biggest crowd I have performed in front of was 2500, so it’s a big jump to 10,000,” Miss Flack said.
“I am really looking forward to singing Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, it’s a personal favourite.”
Mrs Walsh moved to Albury from Britain a year ago, saying she wanted to become involved in the community and the carols seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Project manager Sharyn Bilston said the cast included 30 singers, almost half of those making their debut performance at QEII Square event.
Ms Bilston said the promising new talent would be joined by a carols band and choir.
“There will be some knock-out performances from some new young people making their debut,” she said.
“We also have three singers from the UK who will perform a special English carol, Mistletoe and Wine.”
The carols will start at 7pm, with Santa making a guest appearance.
Candles and song books will be available for a gold coin donation.
