WHO WE ARE
Pembina Trails Voices (PTV) is an award-winning choral program affiliated with the Division of Preparatory Studies at the Desautels Faculty of Music, University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. PTV offers an exciting choral program that values community, self-empowerment, personal growth, hard-work, and a desire and drive to participate in achieving something truly outstanding.
Offering a top choral organization in Winnipeg for nearly 40 years, PTV continues to shine as a music program steeped in excellence for children, youth, and young adults and as the 'go-to' young people's choir for music events with professional groups like the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
PTV's track record for national and international distinction is impressive. Recent highlights include PTV Singers' auditioned invitation to perform at the 2020 PODIUM national choral conference in Montreal and 3rd place win at the 2019 International Choral Festival in Llangollen, Wales. Cantemus was the winner of the 2019 National Associated Music Festivals Choral Competition and 3rd place finalist in the 2019 CBC National Amateur Choir Competition. In 2022, the world premiere of Sid Robinovitch's youth oratorio JONAH was performed by PTV's three senior treble ensembles, PTV Chamber Ensemble, Cantemus and Chorale and the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra with Sid Rovinovitch in attendance! Upcoming seasons 2024 and 2025 have PTV choirs again performing with the city's top professional arts organizations.
At the Winnipeg Music Festival in 2021 and 2022, PTV's small ensembles won the Kozub Trophy for 'top music ensemble' in the Winnipeg Music Festival and the Gordon Hignell Trophy for 'outstanding vocal ensemble. PTV's younger choirs, Ragazzi, Chorale and Choraliers, have been consistent past winners of the Winnipeg Music Festival's top choral awards and finalists in both provincial and national choir competitions. In the 2023 Winnipeg Music Festival, PTV's Minnesingers ranked GOLD and the PTV Chamber Ensemble was the recipient of the Helga Anderson Trophy for outstanding adult choral ensemble.
Come share the excitement! This program is for you if you dream of singing in an award-winning ensemble, working with gifted conductors, meeting other singers who share your love of singing and connecting with the vibrant music scene of Winnipeg.
