Best Choir at International Festival

The highlight of The Winnipeg Singers' European Tour, July 2016, took place at the Florence International Choir Festival where the Singers were the winners of the Golden David, the award that goes to the best overall choir at the competition. The Singers also won two of the three categories they entered: chamber choir and sacred.  Read more –>


Precise entries and forward motion highlighted the Gloria, which, with its reverent joy was truly glorious. Tempo changes were seamless in the Credo as Klaz kept this flowing, separate parts wafting in and out like ribbons of silk.

what people are saying about the Winnipeg Singers

"The Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and the Winnipeg Singers presented a stellar concert tonight .....an amazing evening."

"Moments of transcendence.  It was a privilege to be there!"

"Overwhelmingly marvelous.  Congratulations to...the choir and MCO for executing everything in such a precise manner."

"The Nov. 7 Wpg Singers/MCO concert will stand out as one of the most memorable for the entire season!  The music was superbly presented and indeed very moving."

"An exquisite and moving performance of the 3 selections.  They were all so delicate and sublimely expressive that in the Arvo Paert I felt like we were in a monastery and even heard hints of Carol Orff's Carmina Burana.  Wonderfully complex accompaniment in the orchestra and the sound track.  The Sunrise Mass was...brilliantly bright and uplifting.  The choir is sounding so refined and polished in these works.  Thank you for a most beautiful and reflectively emotional evening.  You have surpassed yourself in excellence again and we have heard it."
