A celestial host of talented musicians, soloists and performers including chorale students from three of Bali's international schools will lead the community in songs of the holiday season at the Canggu Clubs' first Carols by Candlelight - I'm An Angel Fundraiser recital on Sunday 10 December from 6.00 p.m. - 9.00 p.m..
This special family event will see Bali's only private members' club open its doors to the public and transform into a sea of flickering candle light as Bali's children and residents take to the stage to perform carols covering the entire musical milieu from popular Christmas carols, to jazz, opera, pop and rock.
The event is free of charge and all the community are invited to join in the festive spirit of song.
Carols by Candlelight embraces the true spirit of Christmas by helping raise funds for the health and educational needs of many of Bali's most impoverished and disadvantaged children who, through the I'm an Angel Foundation receive assistance together with 2,788 other children in the Tianyar region of Karangasem, as well as 150 more orphans waiting for placement in local orphanages.
Adding to the festivities, The Canggu Club has erected a Christmas Angel Tree where the names, details and photos of the children are hung along the trees branches. Visitors and guests are able to select a child to purchase either a present of their choice, or a pre-packaged 'Ready for School' pack (Rp.35,000 per child - approximately US$3.80) which will enable the child to start school with the appropriate supplies and uniforms. Donors are also able to add to the packs if they wish to include other items such as toys, comic books and candy. Second hand items of any nature are also gladly accepted.
The Christmas Angel Tree will be up at The Canggu Club from December 07 – 30, 2006in the Clubs' Lobby for anyone wish to "become an angel" for one of the children aided by The Club and the Foundation.
Special appearances are planned at the recital by children from choirs of local international schools, Australian opera singer Katrina Valkenberg, and jazz vocalist Kim Patra – more readily known as Bali's favorite registered nurse and mid-wife. They’re will also be the Christmas play 'Santa's Workshop' performed by the 'Dramarama Group' of Canggu Club children, and, of course, a special visit from Santa Claus and his helpers will be part of the festivities.
A Carols by Candlelight program Song Book as well as a giant screen with the lyrics to the carols will help everyone get into the sing-a-long spirit.
Candles, Christmas decorations and loads of festive fare will be available for sale including fruit mince pies, gingerbread men, iced coconut eggnog and shortbread biscuits with proceeds donated to the Foundation.
A family style BBQ, Salad Bar and variety of beverages will also be available.
