A native of Abitibi-Temiscamingue (Quebec), Émilie Fortin is a versatile and curious trumpeter who believes that teaching is inseparable from performance. She pursued her undergraduate degree with Lise Bouchard at University of Montreal and completed her master’s degree in performance in 2017 at McGill University, with Russell DeVuyst. Émilie always seeks to excel and find balance in her personal practice, working equally in orchestras and in contemporary music.
It’s in this context that she participated in many summer festivals internationally, like PRISMA, soundSCAPE and fresh inc. She’s a freelance musician for several ensembles in Montreal, and she currently plays in the Griffon Brass Band. In addition, she’s a private teacher for high school students and adults, and taught trombone and trumpet in Haïti in the summers of 2016-17.
