About PHC

PHC Logo

The Provincial Honour Choirs program (PHC) provides an opportunity for talented singers from all areas of our province to come together for an extraordinary choral experience!

PHC began as part of the Provincial Choral Festival in 1982. By 1987, the conference needed a weekend of its own. Between 70 to 80 auditioners across Manitoba chose singers from all regions of the province to participate in two choirs: the Junior Choir (grades 6 - 8) and the Senior Choir (grades 9 - 12). Gordon Bell High School has hosted the conference since that time.

Today, PHC consists of three choirs and over 250 singers every year. PHC continues to feature the finest choral musicians as guest conductors and collaborative pianists and instrumentalists.
