Categories:

28 February 2018

Encouraging the community to come together and sing the harmonious hits of rock music icons Queen, this year’s City of Joondalup Community Choral Project is set to be the best one yet.

This year the City already has more than 350 registrations for the Choral Project, where participants meet for seven weeks of rehearsal and musical bonding prior to the performances at the Joondalup Festival on March 23 and 25.

The group will sing iconic Queen hits including; Somebody to Love, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Bohemian Rhapsody and We Will Rock You.

Songs will be set to a stunning visual background of projections by audio visual artist Roly Skender and will be accompanied by a professional five piece band.

This year the choir will also feature Aria and Helpmann award winning musician and front man of End of Fashion, Justin Burford as one of the lead singers.

Justin has spent the past few years playing the lead role in the Australian production of the Broadway hit musical Rock of Ages.

His voice has been described by those in the business as; ‘like honey with gravel in it’.

Accompanying Justin is local performer Shel Lambeck who auditioned for a solo spot after singing in the choir for three years previously.

“The City’s Community Choral Project is one of the most exciting community arts projects in Perth,” Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said.

“It provides people of all ages with the opportunity to develop new skills, learn from some of the best musicians in WA and connect with their community.

“We are very excited to have End of Fashion’s Justin Burford taking part in this year’s Community Choral. He will bring a magical ingredient to the show and we look forward to it being one of our best yet.”

The Community Choral Project will take place at the Joondalup Festival at 7pm on Friday 23 March and 7pm on Sunday 25 March.

Both performances will be held in Central Park, no bookings are necessary.
