Girls: Grades 2 to 3

Debra Yacheson, Conductor
Kimberly Lapatha, Pianist
Location: Immanuel Pentecostal Church, 955 Wilkes Ave.
Time: Thursdays, 4:45 – 5:45 p.m.

Minnesingers provides a challenge opportunity for girls in grades two and three. The young choristers experience their first steps as choral musicians. They are introduced to the basics of vocal technique (pure vowel sounds, breath control), early music reading skills and listening skills. The girls are encouraged to develop strong choral independence and skills to work as a team to achieve vocal unity. Repertoire of the highest calibre is chosen for these young choristers who sing both in unison and two-parts. By the end of grade three, choristers are eligible to continue on to the next choir within the Pembina Trails Voices program as a member of Choraliers for grades four and five.

The Minnesingers participate in the Pembina Trails Voices winter and spring concerts, as well as a concert for PTV's youngest choirs each March with NOVA, Boys TC's and Choraliers.

Debra Yacheson, Conductor

Debra is excited to be in her 12th year conducting Minnesingers. Debra currently teaches music at Pacific Junction School and Henry G. Izatt Middle School. Her choirs have enjoyed many successes including trophies in the Winnipeg Music Festival, a provincial scholarship award and a recommendation to the Provincial Music finals. Debra is honoured to have worked as a guest conductor for the Louis Riel School Division Honour Choir, The Winnipeg School Division, Eastman Honour Choir and as the choral clinician at Children's Day for the Manitoba Orff Chapter. Most recently, Debra is the proud recipient of the Michael J. Proudfoot award for choral excellence given by the Winnipeg Music Festival. Debra's passion for music began at an early age, having been raised by a mother who played the violin and a father who played the accordion and guitar. She studied piano all through school with inspiring teachers which lead her to study music and receive her Bachelor of Arts (music major) and Bachelor of Education at the University of Winnipeg and Mennonite Brethren College (now CMU).
