Music Director, PJ Buchan
PJ Buchan – a native of Winnipeg – has been involved with choral and vocal music since he joined the men and boys choir at All Saint’s Church as a young boy in 1979. He has appeared as a chorister and soloist with many of Winnipeg’s foremost choirs, including the Winnipeg Singers, Renaissance Voices, and Camerata Nova.
His choral work has taken him on many tours, most recently to Taiwan and Japan to attend the Taipei International Choral Festival and the World Choral Symposium in Kyoto. The bulk of his solo training was at the Reykjavik School of Singing, which he attended from 1995-98. He has been a competitor for both the Rose Bowl and the Tudor Bowl at the Winnipeg Music Festival, has appeared as a soloist in London’s Millenium Centre and Prague’s St Vitus’s Cathedral, and was the guest soloist at the February 2005 Reykjavik Winter Festival.
Recently PJ has been involved in opera productions with Winnipeg’s Musical Offering and Little Opera Company, and has performed as soloist with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra and Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
