Manitoba Flatland Singers


The Flatland Singers is a combined high school choir consisting of 37 energetic, enthusiastic vocalists from the Steinbach Regional Secondary School, Mennonite Collegiate Institute, Westgate Mennonite Collegiate and Garden Valley Collegiate. Working with teenage students and collaborating to push musical boundaries invigorates directors Kristel Peters (SRSS, Steinbach), Rick Heppner Mueller (MCI, Gretna), Victor Pankratz (WMC, Winnipeg) and Korey Peters (GVC, Winkler). This spirited troupe takes the best from four institutions, combining it to produce the exceptional sound of the Flatland Singers. Relishing the bus trip from Manitoba, the group brings a repertoire package that will inspire audiences from across the country!
