Edmee Nataprawira, Choral Conductor And Early Childhood Music Educator

Edmee is delight­ed to be part of the cre­ative music hub project. A strong believ­er in music’s abil­i­ty to build com­mu­ni­ty, cre­ativ­i­ty, and con­nec­tion, Edmee is the con­duc­tor of the Prepara­to­ry Choir at VIVA Singers Toron­to. She also teach­es Junior School Music at St. Clement’s School and leads the school’s Choral and Strings pro­grams. Pri­or to join­ing the St. Clement’s com­mu­ni­ty, she taught at Rosedale Heights School of the Arts and recent­ly com­plet­ed an eight-year term with Tim­o­thy Eaton Memo­r­i­al Church’s Choir School, where she co-direct­ed the children’s music pro­gram and taught choral music through song, move­ment, and play to kids from kinder­garten through Grade 4.

A grad­u­ate of the Roy­al Con­ser­va­to­ry of Music (ARCT, piano; Grade 10, cel­lo) and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to (Hon­our B.Mus. and B.Ed., with a minor in Eng­lish), Edmee has been the recip­i­ent of numer­ous schol­ar­ships and awards, includ­ing the Lloyd Brad­shaw Prize for choral con­duct­ing and the Gor­don Cressy Lead­er­ship Award. She loves to explore the ways in which music can nur­ture rela­tion­ships, cre­ate change, and speak to our sense of wonder.
