Created in the summer of 2013, Horizon is a vibrant, high-calibre community choir composed of talented adults aged 26 and over who are madly in love with choral singing! Horizon strives to offer innovative, energetic choral performances that engage a contemporary audience. Horizon will provide a place for singers to continue to hone their choral technique and performance.

Johanna Hildebrand has enjoyed a life-long involvement in music of all styles and genres. Subsequent to the acquisition of Musical Arts and Education degrees from Canadian Mennonite University and the University of Manitoba, she has taught choir and fiddling in various schools, and presently teaches in the Seven Oaks School Division, where she teaches music, choir and fiddling.


Johanna has performed and studied music since the age of two. Her musical interests have multiplied through the years, including various instruments and singing in numerous vocal and instrumental groups, most recently Renaissance Voices and the Canadian Chamber Choir.


Johanna's choral experience includes working with singers of all ages through university, community, public and private schools and she has served as a guest conductor at various Manitoba choral days, including the Provincial Honour Choir. She is currently the choral director of the Rainbow Harmony Project. She is widely travelled and enjoys her links to a variety of interests which include folk festivals, swimming and walking her 100 pound labradoodle!
