Welcome to the Wiki for the S o n a t r i c e    S i n g e r s 

A community choir located in Carman, Manitoba  



The Manitoba Choral Association has nominated the Sonatrice Singers from Carman to represent Manitoba at MusicFest Canada in the category of Community Choirs. 

The nomination follows the choir’s performance in the Community and Church Choir class at the 25th annual ChoralFest Manitoba in Winnipeg on November 26, 2011.  Ten other choirs participated in this class.

Adjudicators John William Trotter from Vancouver and Dr. Eugene Rogers from St Paul, Minnesota praised the choir’s readiness to perform and the quality of the performance.  Both adjudicators also praised the conductor, Cindee Broeska and the accompanist, Audrey Myers.

 Sonatrice Singers are honoured by this nomination, especially during this season which is the 40th anniversary of the group, whose longevity is unique in rural Manitoba. The nomination recognizes the contribution to the development of music, especially choral music, outside a major centre such as Brandon or Winnipeg.  Being honoured also marks the dedication of the members to regular weekly practice and ongoing skill development.   

The nomination to perform at the national level may be accepted for either May, 2012 in Ottawa or May, 2013 in Toronto.  Because the choir is preparing for the 40th Reunion Celebration in April , the choir is considering accepting the invitation to travel to Toronto next year, allowing more time to organize for this rare opportunity.

Sonatrice has been nominated twice previously, traveling to both Toronto and Ottawa.

This year the Annual Spring Concerts, Sonatrice Celebrates, will be held on Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27 with many previous members re- joining for three songs.  Men who have previously sung with the choir have also been invited to join for this special occasion.   The  40th reunion will occur on Saturday, April 28, with special events planned at the Active Living Center.

sonatrice singers 2009

We are a singing group of about 38 women who love music. December and May concerts are held every year in Carman, Manitoba. Sonatrice supports the Carman and Area Christmas Cheer Board as well as youth music bursaries. Led by Cindee Broeska, the choir has participated at the Provincial and National Level of choral competition (bronze and silver awards). Some of our members have been singing in this group for over 30 years (and since it began). Our accompaniest is Audrey Myers, an original member of the group.

The choir welcomes new venues and places to share our music. We have sung in hospitals, seniors' homes, schools, choral festivals, Relay for Life (Cdn Cancer Society), Wpg Goldeyes game, in fields, on planes, in cars and buses, etc.  You can contact us at sonatricesingers@gmail.com 

 We are celebrating our 40th Anniversary in 2012 with a special weekend in May.
