Kellie Walsh, Artistic Director, Shallaway Youth Choir and Lady Cove Choir
When people asked little Kellie Walsh what she wanted to be when she grew up, she probably didn’t say, “I want to be a choral conductor.” But that’s exactly what she became, and wow – what a gig. Kellie grew up and studied music in St. John’s, then shipped out to Toronto to teach music and perform. She returned home years later and became Memorial University’s first graduate in choral conducting. She founded Lady Cove Women’s Choir and is Artistic Director of that group, as well as Shallaway Youth Choir, both of which have won international awards. With Kellie at the helm, we’re sure their success is just beginning.
