Conductor Emeritus of Toronto Children’s Chorus

Ms. Elise Bradley, MNZM, was the Artistic Director of the Toronto Children’s Chorus for 14½ years. During her tenure, the Chorus recorded professionally, commissioned Canadian compositions, collaborated with numerous international and national artists, and represented Toronto on nine international and four national tours.

Its CD, “Sounzscapes: From Our Lands”, was named the most Outstanding Choral Recording by Choral Canada in 2014. 

Ms. Bradley received many invitations to conduct, adjudicate choirs, and present at conferences around the globe, including recently the 11th World Symposium on Choral Music, Dozan wa Awtar, the inaugural New Zealand National Children’s Choir, the IFCM World Choral Expo, Gondwana Voices, Orientale Concentus, Carnegie Hall and Europa Cantat. In addition, Ms. Bradley was invited to serve as an Artistic Advisor of the Hong Kong Inter-School Choral Festival after serving as the Festival’s adjudicator and keynote speaker in 2020.

In January 2018, Ms. Bradley was named a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM), an honour awarded in recognition of her services to music. Ms. Bradley is now the Artistic Director of the New Zealand Children’s Choral Academy.
