CHORISTERS FALLING FOR GROUP
SINGING YOUNG South Perth shower singers can put their bathroom vocal talents to good use by joining West Australian Young Voices.
The group comprises young choristers, aged between eight and 16 and meets every Saturday afternoon at the Adina Hotel in Perth.
Artistic director Perry Joyce runs the choral group and is an experienced choir director and voice coach. “The choir also fosters the chorister’s innate creativity and encourages participation in the community,” Mr Joyce said.
“We aim to promote the creation, performance and advancement of new and existing Australian music.”
The group will present its first concert for the year entitled Falling, featuring music and performances that explore the themes of autumn, love and the fallen.
“We sing of soldiers from World War I, the beauty of nature, falling in love and the transition from childhood to young adulthood,” Joyce said.
“The music stays true to form by honouring the master-composers like Bach, but we are also using modern influences such as WA pop duo the Voltaire Twins.”
The concert also features some popular local talent such as St Mary’s resident and organist Alessandro Pittorino and 14-yearold South Perth soprano Atira Shack.
“We have all been working very hard, and we will be performing a great selection of songs,” Atira said.
“Our conductor Perry Joyce has also composed a piece especially for our concert called Falling, so I am looking forward to performing that piece as it is extra special."
