Combining classical voice with songwriting
Acadia’s Ellen Torrie talks finding unique sound that brings her two passions together
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
