Special talent Silvie Paladino lured for Horshams Carols by Candlelight

Singing Sensation Silvie Paladino is this years special guest performer at Horsham's Carols by candlelight to be held on Sunday December 1.

Silvie has been one of the major performers at Melbourne's Carols my Candlelight performance on Christmas eve and this year will make it her 22nd year in a row performing at the event held at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Whilst it took ten months to secure Ms Paladino after seeing her perform locally - Carols Committee Member Simon Dandy says its a big deal for the Horsham community.

"We are very excited, luckily this year after ten months of trying to get her - we've got Silvie Paladino coming along - which is absolutely a huge coo for carols and the Wimmera".

"She came to Horsham last year and sang at the Horsham Church of Christ and Lisa Thomas and I thought you don't get anywhere if you don't try and we asked and she said talk to my management - we thought we'd have a crack and in the end she said yep. We are just thrilled to have someone like her, I think this year will be her 22nd year performing at Melbourne's carols by candlelight in a row so if you get a gig there you're doing alright so we are really lucky to get her".

Mentioning the inclement weather that rained the outdoor event out two years ago Mr Dandy said "we've got the team at the town hall already booking it out for us - they've already set that aside just in case and there will also be live streams to the Harvest Church and Horsham Church of Christ - obviously the theater only holds 500 people and with someone like Silvie coming there will be a lot more demand, so we've got those provisions happening, its only happened twice in 20 years - so the odds are with us and fingers crossed".

Carols will also be broadcast and streamed live on 1089 3WM and Mixx FM - with a replay also taking place on Christmas Day on both stations.

Carols this year falls on the same weekend as Kannamaroo so its a great weekend to wrap up the weekend with food and activities from 5.30pm and the program starting at 7.30pm.

This year funds raised will go towards the Naked Farmer Ben Brooksby who will be at the event also.
