Prairie Voices

Prairie Voices is a company of singers ages 18-25 dedicated to the performance of innovative contemporary choral music from all over the world, with an emphasis on Canadian and Manitoban composers. Using energy, expressiveness and movement, Prairie Voices manages to connect avant-garde composition with a popular audience.

Prairie Voices has performed with many professional organizations, most recently representing Manitoba at Podium in New Brunswick. A highlight of the conference was their master class session with Canadian composer Stephen Hatfield. Also, this past season, the choir had the pleasure of premiering the commissioned work "Autumn" by Jussi Chydenius of the Finnish group Rajaton. This season, the choir is looking forward to performing at the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s New Music Festival, where they will accompany the silent film, “The Passion of Joan of Arc.”

Artistic Director Kristel L. Peters obtained a Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education from the University of Manitoba and currently teaches business education and music at Steinbach Regional Secondary School. Kristel has an extensive musical background, excelling in local competitions and choirs nationally and internationally, including National Youth Choir and the Summer Academy for Choral Conducting. The 2008-2009 season will be her 6th year with Prairie Voices.
