Camerata Nova Bursary


Camerata Nova is a vocal group without fear, performing Renaissance, Indigenous-infused and contemporary music. Often singing a cappella, the group also enjoys accompaniment from didgeridoos, crystal bowls, all kinds of percussion, and/or early instruments.

Since 1996, they continue to push the envelope, offering authentic early music performances, premieres of Manitoba compositions and an eclectic array in between. Camerata Nova has issued four CDs: Camerata Nova, Mystica, Nova Noël and Camerata Nova Live: Christmas in Early America, as well as a DVD Wa Wa Tey Wak (Northern Lights).

Camerata Nova is led by a quartet of extraordinary individuals: Artistic Director and Resident Composer Andrew Balfour, and Curators/Conductors Mel Braun, Vic Pankratz and John Wiens.

Camerata Nova's strengths are innovative programming, collaboration and community. They are widely known for their ability to take the choral experience to a new level, using musical and, at times, theatrical and visual design to engage their audience, live or digitally, in a profound, surprising experience. Camerata Nova reaches up and reaches out but its roots are deep in Prairie soil.

The Camerata Nova Bursary is awarded for the most outstanding performance of early music by a vocalist or choir.
