Established in 1922, The Winnipeg Philharmonic Choir holds the distinguished honor of being the oldest choral group in Western Canada.

At its October 24 meeting, the Board of the Philharmonic Choir honoured the contribution of Keith Black to the work of the Board. Keith has served ably as President and Past President of the Board returning on a pro tem basis to "fill holes" when asked. His dedication and hard work on behalf of the Phil have been outstanding. His voice at the Board table has been one of passion for choral singing and of reason in our deliberations. His best guess is that he served a total of 12 years as a member of the Board of Directors. We have benefitted greatly from his contributions and know we have a solid supporter, still in the ranks of the choir, ready to assist when and where he can. In the photo, Past-President Jeff Carter (right) makes a presentation to Keith.
