Soprano: Lesley Bouza: Soprano

 

Canadian Soprano Lesley Bouza is happiest when she is on stage making music with her talented colleagues. While initially trained in saxophone, Lesley discovered the potential of her singing voice in her early twenties and never looked back, taking every opportunity to use her eclectic skill-set performing jazz, pop, musical theatre, and classical genres. Lesley is proud to have appeared as a soloist with a diverse group of musical ensembles, including The Toronto Symphony, Les Violon du Roy, The Elora Singers, The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, The Winnipeg Symphony, and the Calgary Philharmonic. Some of Lesley’s most memorable career highlights include Lesley Sings Joni, a Joni Mitchell tribute concert at the 2018 Elora Festival, Steve Reich at 80 with Soundstreams, Dido and Aeneas at Carnegie Hall with Les Violons du Roy, and a tour of Taiwan as a member of the Swingle Singers.

In addition to being a busy performer Lesley is an accredited music therapist. This provides her with the opportunity to connect with others through music and to support them in their exploration of music as a tool for their own well-being.
