At the Heart of the Arts A Mine: Winnipeg Free Press

FLIN FLON — It’s Saturday morning and director Crystal Kolt stands at the bottom of a tiered room, leading the Flin Flon Community Choir through vocal warm-ups.

Crystal Kolt, Head of the Flin Flon Arts Council, looks out over Flin Flon from a high ridge in town.

"Ma, me, mi, mo, mu," the members hum as Kolt shouts out, albeit kindly, technical corrections. "Tacca, tacca, tacca, he, ha, he," they continue.

Despite the low-key rehearsal setting — a local elementary school — and the group’s understated name, this is not an informal gathering of friends with a common hobby.
