Joyce Davis - Flute
Joyce Davis' passion for music began in church choir as a child. She enjoys the process of collaborating with other musicians to create beauty that could not otherwise be achieved individually.

Joyce began playing the flute at an early age, thanks to the garage sale bargain her parents purchased for her: a $50 nickel-plated Artley. She co-founded the flute choir, SilverWynde, in 1993, which has become the musical fixture at Zilker Park's Easter sunrise service.

Joyce grew up in Austin and earned a degree in sociology from The University of Texas. In addition to music, she is passionate about technology, helping people connect and collaborate using social software. She conducts workshops for churches and conferences on the use of social networking in ministry. In her professional life, Joyce serves as Collaboration Program Manager for Apple. Joyce lives with her musician husband and two children in Bee Cave, Texas. You can keep up with Joyce's every move at
