About Voices Three
Judy Wing, Helen Austin and Sue Pyper began performing together in 2006,
taking the name “Voices Three” from a lyric in the song “One Voice” written
by Ruth Moody of the Wailin Jennys. The original intention was a one-time
performance to raise awareness of their combined talents with the proceeds
supporting a local charity.
The feedback and enthusiasm that followed their initial performance at the
Sid Williams Theatre was much greater than expected, and inspiring further
fundraising concerts for the Comox Valley Hospice Society (CVHS) each
highlighted by beautifully blended harmonies, poignant and insightful lyrics, and
as each of these women have a quirky comedic side, many laughs based on
"Standing ovation in the first half? Unheard of!!"
From the lyrical edges of self-assertion to orchestrated kazoo rhapsodies, cheeky and irreverent parodies, monologue characters and X-Large humour on bathing suit pursuits, Voices Three fund raising concerts have been filled with magical moments that endear these talented women to their audiences. The beautifully blended harmonies, poignant and insightful lyrics, and quirky comedic outbursts have generated many laughs based on familiar experiences.
Adding to the variety of the evenings have been the musical talents of several
accompanists including bass and guitarist Bruce Wing, percussionists Brad
Hawkes and Jim Stepan, saxophonist Michael Schwarz and violinists Trent
Freeman and Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Champion Patti Lamoureaux.
The group released a live recording of their 2008 Sid Williams Theatre
performance, a zesty sample of what Voices Three have to offer. "Live and
Unleashed" is available online, as well as at their live performances. Visit the
