A frequent award-winner at district, provincial and national levels of competition, Juventus won a second place in the CBC Amateur Choir's Competition in 2000, and mostly recently it placed 2nd in the 19-and-under category of the 2009 National Music Festival. The choir's travels have taken it to Brandon, Edmonton and Ottawa as well as to many Saskatchewan destinations.

Juventus has been a leader in building links between choirs and has collaborated with the Calgary Girls' Choir, the Pembina Trails Voices Chorale from Winnipeg, the Cantilon Children`s Choir of Edmonton, the Brandon Conservatory Chamber Choir and The Canadian Chamber Choir. Youth in Song Prairie Choral Festival, hosted in 2000 and 2003 by Juventus, brought together hundreds of choristers from across the prairies under the baton of Bruce Pullan and Diane Loomer. Juventus Concert Choir is delighted to present an all-Canadian programme at Podium 2010.
