EMV’s Emerging Artists’ Concert features the next generation of musicians performing works by Francesca Caccini and Barbara Strozzi, Henry Purcell and J.H. Schmelzer. The 17th century was a time of great innovation in music thanks to the rise of composers who happily defied the rules of composition. Early Music Vancouver’s 2022 Emerging Artists, Ellen Torrie, soprano, and Marie-Nadeau Tremblay, violinist, are part of the next generation of musicians who also defy established practices and bring a fresh look at early music.
Ellen Torrie is a singer-songwriter and storyteller based in Montréal who works and collaborates fearlessly across a multitude of musical genres and artistic mediums. They have just completed their master’s degree in early music voice at McGill University.
Marie Nadeau-Tremblay discovered the Baroque violin during her last year at McGill University. Transported by the beauty of this music, she plunged headfirst into the Baroque world. Marie released her first solo album, Preludes et Solitudes, in 2021 and promptly won the Discovery of the Year Prize at the Opus Awards 2022. We are excited to be able to support both of these genre-pushing young artists at Early Music Vancouver, and we look forward to seeing them make their mark in the music world.
“My passion is to bridge musical and social worlds by using elements of historical performance practice to democratize music and facilitate community storytelling.”
– Ellen Torrie
