Born and raised in Toronto, Michele DeBoer enjoyed a rich musical education growing up, particularly through the Claude Watson School for the Arts and the Toronto Children’s Chorus. After completion of a Bachelor of Music at the University of Western Ontario and an Associateship in Singing Performing (ARCM) from the Royal College of Music in London, England, a career balancing performing and teaching evolved. Michele has sung with Tafelmusik, Opera Atelier and many other leading early music groups and professional choirs in the GTA and Quebec, currently working as a church organist and maintaining a voice studio in Mississauga. A proud member of the class of 2020, Michele is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Speech Language Pathology at McMaster University. A highlight of the program so far has been time spent working with Indigenous communities in Sioux Lookout, Northern Ontario.
