The WAAPA Gospel Choir was formed at the beginning of 2015 and is directed by Matt Allen. The choir is an audition-only ensemble that consists of Bachelor of Music students from the Contemporary Music course at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). The choir is fresh off massively successful performances at the 'Disconnect Festival', 'Perth’s Longest Lunch', 'People Get Ready' Gospel Show at WAAPA, The AOG Conference, Beaufort St Festival and as a feature of the Contemporary Music department’s biggest production of the year, ‘Radioactive’ in the Geoff Gibbs Theatre. The WAAPA Gospel Choir has also recently recorded with hip hop giant Drapht and features on his latest album, 'Seven Mirrors’ that was nominated for an Aria Award in 2016 and are currently recording with local rap legend Coin Banks. Our biggest performance to date was working with visiting artist and Gospel singing sensation Melonie Daniels-Walker from New York City, who is also the vocal director and backing vocalists for many of the world’s stars having worked with Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson etc.The ensemble is lucky enough to feature some of Australia’s best young, up and coming singers who come together every week to rehearse repertoire inspired by the Gospel.
