"For 26 years, The Winnipeg Singers have brought the best of choral music to Canadian audienes. This 24-voice ensemble presents four subscription concerts each season, along with tours, broadcasts, and various guest appearances. Their repertoire ranges from medieval organum to new music. New commissions are also an important part of The Winnipeg Singers' mandate. Some of the composers commissioned over the years include Chester Duncan, Leonard Enns, John Greer, Holly Harris, Michael Matthews, and Sid Robinovitch. The Winnipeg Singers have twice received the Canada Council's Healey Willan Award for Choral Excellence and continue to be recognized as one of Canada's finest chamber choirs. They are supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Manitoba Arts council, and the City of Winnipeg." (from container)
