Our Director, John Wiens



The Assiniboine Chorus is delighted to welcome its new director, John Wiens, one of Manitoba’s choral leaders. A co-founder and director of Polycoro, he specializes in a cappella music, and loves barbershop.


John has 15 years of experience which have led him to the stages of North America, Africa and Europe.


He provides singers with a safe and fun space in which to learn, to ask questions and to improve. While focusing on vocal production, John also delves into a rich knowledge of vocal awareness, vocal techniques, aural skills and the shaping of vocal identity.


One member observed that every rehearsal with John was like "learning more useful smart phone functions from children and grandchildren".


John’s hobbies include fencing, song-writing and basketball. He also serves as an adjudicator and clinician across Canada.


Welcome, John! The chorus looks forward to having you take its sound to the next level.
