Dr. Rachel Beausoleil-Morrison brings vital energy to her passionate obsession with all facets of voice work, with the mind of a researcher and the heart of an artist. Her newly minted PhD lets her blend her affinity for languages, Panamerican musics and vocal performance. Her three CDs are infused with international rhythms and dramatic flair. She performs with her groups, the Beausoleil Trio and Brazilian jazz ensemble Sol da Capital, and was a guest performer in the University of São Paulo’s Panamérica Canção Project in 2013. She is one of the founders of the Ottawa Singer-Songwriter Camp. She has sung in several vocal ensembles and maintains a thriving private teaching studio.
The late Seattle trumpeter and vocalist Floyd Standifer Jr. called her “a great talent.”
“Her love for song is palpable.”—Joisanne Haspeck, La Rotonde newspaper
