It’s as sim­ple as this: Ellen Tor­rie loves mu­sic.

She’s been liv­ing and breath­ing the art since the age of four and, af­ter years of singing in choirs and solo per­for­mances on YouTube videos and at recitals, Tor­rie is now study­ing mu­sic ther­apy at Aca­dia.

She’s set to grad­u­ate this spring and is ready to em­bark on a new jour­ney that will be com­pletely her own — com­bin­ing a clas­si­cal voice with a folk-pop song­writ­ing style, by pur­su­ing clas­si­cal per­for­mance and keep­ing her lyrics in mind along the way.

“Mu­sic, es­pe­cially singing, is a huge part of my life and is in ev­ery lit­tle thing that I do. Find­ing a way to com­bine these two loves of mine is the next step, for now,” says Tor­rie.

Be­ing busy pairs well with be­ing a mu­si­cian
