ORGANIST / PIANIST
Ellen joined St. Timothy’s as our Organist/Pianist in November 2021. Ellen is a promising young church musician, who has quickly proven to be a wonderful asset to the St. Timothy’s community. In addition to playing music to accompany the liturgy at our worship services, in the absence of a Choir Director Ellen has worked with our small but mighty choir to provide anthems for special services. Ellen plays both our electric organ and our baby grand piano.
Ellen is currently working on her Royal Conservatory of Music Level 10 in piano. In 2019 and 2012, Ellen participated in the St. Albert Rotary Music Festival. In 2021, she won awards in both Classical and Baroque piano, and received an invitation to the Alberta Provincial Music Festival.
In 2019, Ellen began studying organ under the guidance of Marnie Giesbrecht, a Professor Emerita at the University of Alberta. In 2020, Ellen earned a “Beginning Organists Scholarship” through the Edmonton Centre branch of the Royal Canadian College of Organists (RCCO).
