Več o zboru:
The last four decades have brought the University of Manitoba Singers to prominence as a performing ensemble in Canada; they are known for their innovative and inspired performance of new and traditional choral repertoire.
The Singers have appeared on numerous occasions with leading professional organizations having performed and recorded Arvo Pärt’s Litany with the Hilliard Ensemble and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and Glen Buhr’s Ritchot Mass with the Penderecki String Quartet. Premieres of new music also include Canzoni Romane by Sid Robinovitch (1999), Styx by Kancheli (2003), Raft of the Medusa by Veda Hille commissioned by the CBC and the WSO’s New Music Festival (2008), and Sid Robinovitch’s Cantus Borealis (2011) with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra. Recently they have performed works by Schnittke, Auerbach and Rachmaninoff with the Latvian Radio Choir.
In addition to the University Singers’ extensive performance of new works, they regularly perform traditional choral repertoire and masterworks. Recent concerts have included Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s Weihnachtsoratorium, Mozart’s Requiem, Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
The University Singers have placed first in the CBC Radio National Amateur Choir Competitions (Chamber Choir Category). They have toured extensively throughout the Americas and they have taken numerous concert tours to Europe, including Germany, Holland, Austria, Poland, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Ireland and England. Most recently they have toured Serbia, Hungary and Montenegro.
