Rainbow Harmony Project

Winnipeg's choir for the LGBTQ2* community and their straight allies

Justin Odwak, Artistic Director
Brittany Mielnichuk, Assistant Director 
Rob Lindey, Accompanist

This award-winning non-auditioned chorus has performed in every province from British Columbia to Quebec and south to Denver.

RHP presents two major concerts per year, Many Gifts in December and a Spring Concert in May.
In addition, RHP frequently participates in local events including World Aids Day, Transgender Day of Remembrance, events for the Museum for Human Rights, Pride Winnipeg and affirming church congregations. They have performed with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and with the internationally acclaimed a cappella group Rajatan.  The repertoire ranges from classical to pop, jazzy to folk - often with a 'queer' twist but always leaving you uplifted and inspired.

All are Welcome

RHP meets every Monday from 7:00 - 9:30 PM during the performance season at the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Winnipeg at 603 Wellington Crescent (at the corner of Wellington Crescent and Maryland).

Choir and community go hand in hand for me. We are building a community of inclusion and music. Giving our community a voice. Singing together for social change and making music of hope. Everyone belongs here and we belong everywhere. Together our choir makes a proud community. A proud community that I am happy to be a part of.
