Ellen Torie, soprano et guitare

Ellen Torrie is a preeminent soprano, songwriter, and performance curator currently making waves in Montréal. Known for their crystalline tone, versatility, and storytelling gifts, Ellen is sought after by various ensembles in Montréal and across Canada. Mentored by Suzie LeBlanc and Dominique Labelle, Ellen earned a master’s degree in early music vocal performance from McGill University in 2022. This was followed by a standout tenure as a winner of the inaugural Emerging Artist Competition of Early Music Vancouver’s Bach Festival. They returned the following year to sing the role of St. Catherine in the festival’s project Milton in Love alongside soprano Myriam Leblanc. Ellen’s previous studies in music therapy positioned healing and connection as the focal points of their performance life. Ellen is currently exploring the practice of self-accompanying early music on baroque guitar. As a queer non-binary artist, Ellen is guided by the knowledge of their queer elders and ancestors in the research and performance of radically inclusive stories as they continue to develop musical languages to explore that which is most richly human.
