Vocal Fusion Choir has been acknowledged for bringing together a variety of voices from across the region.

The group will soon make history by becoming the first Western Australian choir to perform in the annual Melbourne International Singers Festival.

Held from June 6 to 10, this year's event will feature first-class choirs from around the country.

Vocal Fusion Choir event manager Chris Rowlandson said they were thrilled to be part of such a momentous occasion.

"Last year, around 18 of us went over to Melbourne as observers. We really enjoyed what Dr Jonathon Welch AM, from the Choir of Hard Knocks, did during the festival," she said.

"We'll be performing as well as taking part in some of the workshops. We're looking forward to performing in front of like-minded people.

"Every time we go away, our level of quality really goes up a notch."

For president Martyn Piercey, Vocal Fusion Choir helps him to hone his skills and meet new people.

Mr Piercey said they strived to include participants from all walks of life.

"We're sociable, but we're also very serious about what we do. Along the way, we want everyone involved to have fun," he said.

"We have four groups - soprano, alto, tenor, and bass - and they have their own quirks. However, they all feed off each other really well.

"Music is good for the soul."

The group currently has 45 youth and senior members, who all enjoy performing together.
