About Prairie Voices

Founded in 2000 by Dr. Elroy Friesen, Prairie Voices is an award-winning choir of 18-25 year old singers. Past directors have included Dr. Elroy Friesen, Kristel Peters, Nathan Poole, and Vic Pankratz. The current artistic team consists of director Geung Kroeker-Lee and accompanist Ben Sellick. Prairie Voices performs in their own concert series, tours, is a regular guest of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and has recorded 6 CDs (including one as guest choir with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra).

While placing an emphasis on performing the music of Canadian and Manitoban composers, Prairie Voices also loves to perform innovative contemporary choral music from all over the world. The choir uses energy, expressiveness and movement to connect avant-garde composition with a popular audience. Prairie Voices is known for their passionate style of performance, which combines exceptional vocals with engaging presentation to provide the ultimate choral experience.

Prairie Voices has performed around the world, bringing their unique touch to a diverse repertoire, from spirituals to Broadway hits. Working with choral legends such as R. Murray Schafer, Stephen Hatfield and vocal superstars Rajaton, Prairie Voices has managed to grow as an organization while still remaining true to their Canadian roots.
