Choirs re-Joyce in com­pe­ti­tion win

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Arts -

CON­DUC­TOR-mu­si­cian Perry Joyce has led two of his choirs to vic­tory in the inau­gu­ral Go Gospel Choir Com­pe­ti­tion held in Perth on Satur­day, Au­gust 29.

Re­joice Gospel Choir won the first prize of $10,000 plus a four-hour record­ing ses­sion with one of the com­pe­ti­tion spon­sors, and youth choir West Aus­tralian Young Voices won third prize in the com­pe­ti­tion.

“Around the time I had learned of the com­pe­ti­tion, I had also been se­ri­ously re­search­ing gospel mu­sic in the hopes of form­ing my own choir ded­i­cated to the genre, so the tim­ing re­ally couldn’t have been more per­fect,” Joyce said.

The mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­ganza at Re­gal Theatre, Su­bi­aco, paved the way for the fi­nal­ists to en­ter pos­si­ble fu­ture na­tional com­pe­ti­tions.
