Chamber Choir

MUN Chamber Choir and Jakub Martinec

The Memorial University of Newfoundland Chamber Choir is a small group dedicated to singing advanced repertoire. The choir is frequently called upon as an ambassador for Memorial University. First formed in 1975, under Donald F. Cook, the choir has played a key role in the development of choral music in the community through frequent concerts and clinics at MUN School of Music and throughout the province. In addition to this, the choir has represented Newfoundland and Memorial University in various national and international tours. The choir has appeared regularly in the international choral festival, Festival500, Sharing the Voices and under the direction of its former conductor, Dr. Douglas Dunsmore, won several national awards including the National Music Festival Lincoln trophy, the CBC Amateur Choir Competition (twice) and the 2010 Association of Canadian Choral Communities Amateur Choral Competition. In 2013 are delighted to welcome new conductor, Jakub Martinec, who comes to MUN from his previous position as director of the famed Czech Boys Choir.
