TROMBONIST Hannah Trewartha has been performing at Bendigo's annual Christmas carols since she was five years old - and for the first time, she will play solo this year.
The Bendigo Brass Band member says she has a big surprise planned for the night - but won't give anything away.
"I feel very privileged to be asked and it's nice to feel that I'm able to put my training into action," she said.
"It's important musicians are willing to give to the community and educate them about what carols are and what they mean.
"And this year, we'll be doing something different that's never been done at the Bendigo carols before."
She will perform in the second half of the show, alongside Bendigo Youth Performing Choir, Alana Conway and baritone Michael Gillies-Smith.
The Bendigo Youth Choir will also join compere Bruce Roberts for a sing-a-long at the start of the night, along with three Bendigo primary school choirs and the Bendigo Youth Reserve Choir.
There will also be children's entertainment from 8pm.
The carols will be held at Rosalind Park this Sunday, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.
Entry is free and includes a carols program.
