Ensemble - University of Manitoba Women's Chorus

The University of Manitoba Women’s Chorus, under the direction of Dr. Elroy Friesen, is comprised of singers from the Desautels Faculty of Music, the wider university campus, and the surrounding community.  This choir was founded in 1990 by Dr. Henry Engbrecht, and enjoys collaborating in performances with various arts organizations including the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Prairie Voices, Canzona, Musik Barock and the WSO New Music Festival.  They had the honour of singing at the 25th anniversary celebrations of the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies, and they recently performed the Canadian premiere of From Behind the Caravan: Songs of Hâfez by Abbie Betinis - recorded and broadcast by CBC.  The U of M Women’s Chorus has performed across Canada, and most recently travelled to Iceland for their first overseas tour. Plans are underway for an international performance tour in Winter 2015.
