Community Choral Project

The City of Joondalup presents the Virtual Community Choral Project for 2020!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the performance of the Community Choral Project 2020 was cancelled. Having done most of the work, a few members of the choir recorded their voices which has been put together for an online performance.

Listen to the audio of members of the Joondalup community perform Sir Elton John’s Crocodile Rock and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road directed by Matt Reuben James Ward. The City would like to extend a big thank you to Musical and Creative Director Matt Reuben James Ward, Alto leader Sue Ross and Editor Jonathan Brain for bringing this project to life.

The Community Choral Project is a community arts project open to all members of the community, in particular those people who have always wanted to sing in a choir but never dared. The project aims to bring members of the community together to work on a production that is showcased at the Joondalup Festival.

Each year the City contracts a musical director to conduct the community choir. The choir come together to rehearse for approximately eight weeks leading to a final performance at the Joondalup Festival. The choir is made up of amateur, semi-professional singers and music enthusiasts. It is a great opportunity to meet other singers in the northern corridor of Perth and challenge yourself to learn repertoire you have not sung before.

Registrations will open in November 2020.
