We’re delighted to announce the rescheduled performance of J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion for Sunday, October 2, 2022, at 3 pm!

As you know, back in April 2022, the finale concert of our inaugural Winnipeg Baroque Festival was postponed due to weather but we are thrilled to present it to you at the Crescent Arts Centre this October. Canzona, Dead of Winter, and Polycoro are incredibly grateful to you for your patience during this unexpected delay.

The epic choral work will feature members of Vancouver’s Pacific Baroque Orchestra, soloists Jane Fingler, Vicki St. Pierre, Haitham Haidar, Justin Odwak, Jonathon Adams, Paul Bruch-Wiens, and Mel Braun, and a combined force of powerful Manitoba choristers.

Go to for details and to get your $40 tickets now! Excellent value for a massive event! Past ticket holders have already been contacted.

We can’t wait to see you there!

St John Passion 

Coming off the high of this weekend’s festivities, it is with some heaviness that we make this announcement. Most of you may already be aware of the recent weather statement issued for Manitoba as a Colorado low approaches our region. Due to the precarity of these upcoming weather conditions, we have decided to postpone the St John Passion performance with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, originally scheduled for this Friday, April 15. We are, of course, disappointed in this turn of events, but we would like to emphasize that we are not canceling the St John Passion performance. This event is very near and dear to our hearts, and we fully intend to present it at a later date that does not jeopardize the safety of our audience and performers. We are currently working to finalize this new date and will loop you in with all the details at the earliest convenience. 

In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this stormy situation. The show must—and will—go on, so stay tuned!
