A Message From Kathleen

It is a great honour to accept the role of incoming Artistic Director of Canzona. The decades of Canzona’s excellence in Baroque music-making that precede me are humbling, and I look forward to working with the singers and board to envision the ensemble's next chapter. I believe strongly in the power of choral music to unite all people across regions, cultures, and faiths, and of the music of the past to highlight human truths that span the ages. Canzona is one of Canada’s most illustrious proponents of early music practice, and I have every confidence that it will only continue to flourish while remaining rooted in the rich cultural communities of Winnipeg and Manitoba.
