Eleuthera has close to two decades of professional performance experience as a vocalist, including touring solo and with her vocal trio Fruiting Bodies across Canada, the US and Iceland.

She has led singing circles for the last eight years and hosted creative community gatherings for the last three. These include Music for Peace, Community Sing!, the Espace Vegane Open Mic and the Green Mic Open Mic at Co-op la maison verte. The open mics were unique in that they were interdisciplinary, open to all performative arts (music, poetry, comedy, dance, circus, live painting etc) and encouraged collaborations between participants.

Currently, Eleuthera is finishing up her first full-length solo album of soul/blues originals (www.unspokenplace.com), working as a Research Assistant with Kathy Kennedy- exploring the relationship between music and memory in the elderly, and taking the prerequisites to pursue the Graduate Diploma in Music Therapy at Concordia University.

She directs the Phoenix Community Choir, which rehearses Thursdays 7:00 to 8:30 pm from September to June at the Unitarian Church and performs about once a month during Sunday Service. All are welcome!
