Janice has been Director of Music at St. Brendan’s since 2011. She received her Bachelor of Music degree from Stetson and a Masters degree in Music (Organ Performance and Church Music) from the University of Michigan. She has sung as an oratorio soloist throughout the Central Florida area and as Mezzo soprano soloist with the Orlando Messiah Choral Society, the Orlando Philharmonic, The Savannah Symphony Orchestra and Choral Society, and the Catholic Television Mass. She currently sings with the St. James Cathedral Choir and Schola Cantorum.
Janice was Director of Music for Holy Redeemer Church in Kissimmee from 1985-2011, and her choir had the opportunity sing at Mass in St Peter’s Basilica and at a Papal Audience for Pope John Paul II. That experience changed her life and fostered a lasting respect and love for Pope John Paul. She is a member of various Diocesan Committees and has served as a clinician for Diocesan Cantor Workshops, specializing in vocal techniques. She has been married to her husband Jose Luis Davila for 11 years.
