Manitoba Choral Association is pleased to announce that we have hired Katrina Lengsavath as our new Digital Program & Resource Assistant.
Katrina is a Class of 2020 graduate of Gordon Bell High School, where she sang in choirs from grades 7-12 alongside a dedication to dance and athletics. In the spring of 2018 and 2019, she travelled to MusicFest Canada with the school’s auditioned chamber ensemble, VOX.
Katrina recently began pursuing studies in biochemistry and music at Canadian Mennonite University (CMU), while also singing in the CMU Women’s Chorus. Through her education and professional experience, she brings a strong background in administration, event planning, communications, outreach, and graphic design to the role.
Katrina keeps a busy schedule: on top of her studies, she volunteers as President of Project Pulse Winnipeg, where she actively applies her refined leadership abilities. Throughout the year, she works as Administrative Assistant for Meraki Theatre Productions supporting seasonal theatre camps for youth. Further, Katrina serves as Student Program Assistant in Communications for CMU’s Centre for Career and Vocation.
At the beginning of the pandemic, Katrina started volunteering for MCA’s library inventory project because she felt motivated to give back to the choral community that had enriched her high school experience so much. She also joined the Provincial Honour Choirs committee to get involved behind the scenes, having attended PHC in the past for several years.
With a passion for the choral arts, Katrina brings energy, creativity, and an eye for detail to her position. She is eager to work with MCA to expand our activities in the areas of diversity and inclusion in choir, and outreach to young singers. She understands the value of administrative support in arts organizations, noting that “what goes on behind the scenes is crucial to the success of what we can bring to the stage.”
We are excited to welcome Katrina to this new role. She will work alongside MCA’s board and staff team this summer, taking on administrative tasks in the areas of library, communications, membership, programs, and more.
