Welcome!

Camerata Nova is a vocal group without fear, performing medieval, Renaissance, contemporary and Aboriginal-infused music. Often singing a cappella, the group also enjoys accompaniment from didgeridoos, crystal bowls, strings, all kinds of percussion, and/or early instruments. Since 1996, they've continued to push the envelope, offering authentic early music performances, premieres of Manitoba compositions and an eclectic array in between. Camerata Nova is led by a quartet of extraordinary individuals: Artistic Director and Resident Composer Andrew Balfour, and Music Directors Mel Braun, Ross Brownlee and Michael McKay.
