Scott Reimer is a choral professional who is known to his peers as a versatile “chameleon”, having grown up in a highly musical family. Since moving to Winnipeg (the longitudinal centre of Canada) from his home village of Gretna, he has enjoyed a wealth of choral experience having sung with many premier choirs, most notably the Winnipeg Singers, Canzona, Polycoro, Camerata Nova, the National Youth Choir of Canada 2008, and the World Youth Choir 2009/2010/2011. Scott began his career as a choral director when he conducted his church’s men’s choir at the age of 22. From there, he proceeded to conduct within the Prairie Voices Inc. organization for many years, playing a prominent role in founding and establishing their second choir, Horizon. In 2008, Scott founded the Winnipeg based a cappella ensemble, Antiphony, whose second album featured several of his arrangements and was nominated for multiple Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards
