AN EVENING OF FRENCH MUSIC
THE West Australian Young Voices take on a French theme this Christmas.
The young voices will serenade an audience at St Mary’s Anglican Church with the French-themed program Belles Voix.
“I want Belles Voix to capture a refined yet casual elegance prevalent in so much great French music; that sense of relaxed enjoyment, naivety and innocent joie de vivre – an expression we’ve come to know as an enjoyment of life, an exultation of spirit,” conductor and artistic director Perry Joyce said.
“We are conveying this not only through the musical program but also by letting the young cho- risters choose their own performance attire, something Frenchinspired and something which reminds them of the music.”
Joyce said the choir members had been trying extra hard to master some of the difficult French texts by including specialist French elocution coaching in their regime.
