Dipl. Mus Perf (VCM/Camosun)
Growing up in a musical household in Langbank, Saskatchewan, Emily Dubois fell in love with the Canadian fiddle scene as a young child. She grew up attending the Kenosee Lake Kitchen Party music camp where she learned many styles of fiddling from a multitude of famous Canadian musicians. The connections she made there helped create a love of performance, collaboration, and teaching of this rich tradition. Since then she has moved out to Victoria where she has studied under Ivonne Hernandez, performed for 3 years as a member of Coastline, developed Classical teachings and techniques under Simon MacDonald, and completed her diploma for Contemporary Music Performance under Daniel Lapp.
Over her short lifetime Emily has had the opportunity to record, arrange, teach, and perform with many creative individuals and groups. Some of which include: the orchestrating and sound scaping of a production with the Regina Globe Theatre as part of a trio; competing in the 2019 Canadian Grand Masters’ Fiddling Championship in Abbotsford; and performing as the first ever contemporary soloist in the VCM Spark to Flame concert series.
Currently, Emily is thrilled to be working on an advanced certificate for Arts & Entertainment Management, and to be coming on as a contemporary Member of Faculty for basics on the violin through the VCM mentorship program.
