Emily Green is a young choral composer, born in Ottawa, Ontario in 2001. She is currently studying voice and composition at the University of Toronto as a President's Scholar of Excellence. In the past, Emily has been a composer in residence for the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir and has had several pieces performed by choirs such as the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir, the Capital Chamber Choir, the Elmer Iseler Singers, and the University of Toronto's Concreamus Chamber Choir. Emily was also selected for the Amadeus Choir of Greater Toronto's choral composer's workshop in January 2019 and January 2020. She hopes to pursue both composition and teaching as a career.
In addition to becoming increasingly successful as a composer, Emily is also an active member of the music community at large. She has done volunteer and mentor work with programs such as OrKidstra and the Ottawa Children's Choir, as well as having been a part of Youth4Music's Ottawa hub. She participates in the Ontario Youth Choir during the summer, and is a core member of Green Room Sound Collective: a student-led group with a focus on premiering new works by student composers at the University of Toronto. Emily enjoys being able to take part in and give back to the music community, and she makes every effort to immerse herself in as many musical endeavours as possible.
