CVA senior Juliana Joyce will perform Sunday, Apr. 12 in Providence, R.I. as part of the All-Eastern Honor’s Women’s Chorus. She is one of about 850 of the most musically talented high school students in the Eastern region of the United States and Europe selected to perform in the 2015 National Association for Music Education All-Eastern Honors Ensembles.
She is a member of Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Symphonic Band and Jazz Ensemble. She has also attended All-County, Area All-State, Conference All-State, NYSSMA Solo Festivals, and is a member of the Tri M Music Honor Society. Juliana is also active with CVA musicals, recently playing Rosie Alvarez in “Bye Bye Birdie” and Madame Giry in last years’ production of “The Phantom of the Opera.” She received the Mohawk Valley Choral Society scholarship, providing her with private voice lessons from Anita Firman. This past summer, she participated in the Broadway Dreams program at Glimmerglass Festival. Juliana is the daughter of Kevin and Julie Joyce and plans to study Music Therapy in the fall.
Julianna has worked with music teacher Mark Bunce to prepare remarkably challenging music that she will perform under the leadership of prominent conductors at this biennial event. Students will spend three days rehearsing with one of five conductors.
Also performing will be a concert band, symphony orchestra, mixed chorus and jazz ensemble. All ensemble members are selected from participants in their home all-state festivals. Juliana participated in the New York State All-State Women’s Chorus last December in Rochester.
The All-Eastern Women’s and Mixed Chorus will perform for an audience of thousands on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 10:45 a.m. For other program and ticket information please visit www.nafme-eastern.org.
