We would like to offer our hearty congratulations to Chelsea Kutyn, who is the recipient of this year’s annual Camerata Nova bursary for the Most Outstanding Vocal or Choral Performance of Early Music at the 103rd Winnipeg Music Festival! Chelsea won recognition for her interpretation of J.S. Bach’s Wiewohl mein Herz….Ich will dir mein Herze schenken from the St. Matthew Passion.
Chelsea is currently working towards a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance at the University of Manitoba, under the tutelage of master technician, Monica Huisman. She is also one of four artists in Pacific Opera Victoria’s “Apprentice Civic Engagement Quartet,” an artist-led mentorship program aimed at creating authentic story-telling and community engagement through workshops and work with digital mediums.
The 103rd Winnipeg Music Festival ‘virtual’ festival was held from March 1 – 21, 2021. Video recordings of the performances, trophy competitions, and Gala Concert are currently available for viewing via links on the Winnipeg Music Festival website.
