Instruments: Voice, Violin, Piano, ViolaEllen began her musical studies at age four on violin. She studied regularly for the next twelve years with Kathy Charlestream, David Tasgal, and Janet Packer. She was a winner of the 1997 Junior Concerto Competition at the Longy School of Music, and was a member of the Young Performers Chamber Orchestra, which toured Finland in 2001. In addition, she was also a member of the Massachusetts Central District and All-State Orchestras & Choruses from 2000-2004.
Ellen went on to study classical singing in college, and was given many opportunities to perform as a soloist with several of Gordon College's instrumental and vocal ensmbles. She also had the opportunity to tour Italy with the Gordon College Choir in 2006. Other performances at Gordon include the annual Opera Scenes productions, in which she has played roles including Cherubino from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, Pamina from Mozart's Magic Flute, Frasquita from Bizet's Carmen, and the Fairy Godmother from Massenet's Cendrillon.
Since graduating from Gordon, she has performed in several concerts, including a performance with the Gordon College Symphonic Chorale as the soprano soloist for Mozart's Coronation Mass. She has also played the role of Lucinde in Gounod's The Doctor In Spite of Himself.
One of Ellen's favorite aspects of being a musician is teaching, and she has a particular interest in vocal pedagogy. She enjoys working with students of all ages and experience levels, and her main goal is to instill in people a real passion for whatever style of music they enjoy playing or singing the most.
