Avaleigh has always sung, but her special love of choral music began in university and led to her participation in numerous choirs and musical organizations. After earning an MMus in musicology, she became a member of Pro Coro Canada, a professional chamber choir in Edmonton. While in Pro Coro, she was fortunate enough to work with vocal pedagogue Eva Bostrand, and to sing under such extraordinary musicians as Eric Ericson, Anders Eby, Søren Hansen, Ward Swingle, Robert Sund, Tönu Kaljuste and Simon Carrington. In more recent years she has participated in choral projects in Victoria and Edmonton. Avaleigh has lived in Oceanside for nearly eight years. She loves living here where she enjoys walking, cycling, Pilates and Tai Chi, and looks forward to singing with Schooner Cove Singers.
