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 and Ross Brownlee.

Outreaching for the Stars

In 2015-2016, Camerata Nova is offering its very first outreach program in partnership with the expansive Frontier School Division. Aiming to empower kids to express themselves using sounds and soundscapes, artistic director Andrew Balfour and singer/didgeridoo player Michael Thompson visited Bissett, Wanipigow, Black River and Matheson Island in the eastern part of Division 2, from November 30 to December 4, 2015. During phase 2, which happened from March 21 to 24, 2016, they will continue their musical adventure on the western side, in Grand Rapids, Camperville, Duck Bay and Pine Creek.
