What a great feeling of freedom and creativity one has when hearing one’s own singing voice in a vibrant room! For as long as she can remember, Elaine Lemieux has always been fascinated by the sonic colors of the human voice, its possibilities for creative expression and the diversity of emotions that can be revealed.
Elaine Lemieux received a Master’s degree and a Post-Master’s degrees in Music Interpretation in Voice from the University of Montreal, Canada. She has more than 30 years of experience in voice study, training, and singing performance. Elaine has acquired experience as a recitalist, cantor, chorister, performer, voice teacher and music facilitator. She also had the opportunity to solo with different chamber music ensembles, choirs, theatrical groups and dance companies. She performed classical, baroque, sacred and contemporary repertory in Canada, the United States, as well as in Europe.
Elaine has always been inspired by the theatrical and dance improvisation styles created by many performance artists that she had the privilege of working with over the years. In addition, she has completed five years of training in the Musicianship and Leadership Program (MLP) from the MUSIC FOR PEOPLE organization.
As a result, she has truly enhanced her leadership and creative musical language and has found her doorway in helping people find their authentic expressive selves. Elaine focuses on voice and channeling self-expression and movement. She brings a new sensitivity to music improvisation founded in an education in formal classical voice. Her training has helped her communicate effectively in the universal language of music.
Since fall 2014, Elaine has opened her voice studio, VOIX-DE-VIVRE at the Fine Arts Building in downtown Chicago. She truly enjoy teaching voice and music lesson to all ages and all levels of experiences. Elaine is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing Inc.
