Leanne has a passion for singing that began at a young age and lead her to pursue a Bachelor of Choral Music at Canadian Mennonite University, as well as a Bachelor of Education from the University of Manitoba. She has loved working in Manitoban schools as a choral educator, with a variety of program types and age groups, since 2010.
Aside from her role as an educator, Leanne has developed her skills as a director through her work as a guest conductor for the Central Manitoba Choral Association and as a choir clinician for various high school ensembles. Most notably, Leanne was honoured to be one of the co-directors of Horizon a choir in the Prairie Voices family. We are thrilled to have her join our IYC family.
