Dr. Eleanor Stubley has been an Associate Professor of Music and a member of the McGill Faculty of Music since 1989, where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in musicology and conducting, with a focus on aesthetics, philosophical issues, Canadian music, and theorizing performance. She is also an acclaimed writer and is "one of Canada’s most promising young conductors” (Montreal, Gazette, July 1996). She has conducted numerous Canadian and International Ensembles, including the Massey Singers, Elektra, Lapula (Finland), the Bach Festival Orchestra, and members of the Canadian Opera Company.

A recent film featuring a performance of composer Jean Coulthard’s "The Pines of Emily Carr", has been described as “beautifully performed” (Starweek Magazine, Feb. 2005), “stark and stirring” (Toronto, Globe and Mail, Feb. 2005), and “the poster child for the pure art side of the Festival Internationale sur les filmes d’arts (Montreal, Globe and Mail, March, 2005). In 1992, she won international acclaim for her work in the International Dvorak Competition.

She has also been involved with numerous contemporary music projects sponsored by the Canadian Music Centre, BBC, CBC Radio and Radio-Canada, and is currently artistic director for Music Alive, a series of programmes for school audiences at McGill University and the Yellow Door Choir, a chorale that specializes in world and contemporary music.

Dr. Stubley began as a french horn player while studying at the University of Toronto, where she received the Jean Goldman scholarship. In 1984, she received her ARCT from the Royal Conservatory of Toronto. Graduating with a Masters degree from Brandon University in 1985 and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois in 1989, she has received major awards from SSHRC, FCAR, and the Canada Council for the Arts. She has studied with a variety of internationally renowned conductors, including Helmut Rilling, Ton Koopman, Victor Feldbrill, and Elmer Isler.

She is currently writing a book entitled "Music on my Mind; Music in my Body", which examines the experience of body and self in different forms of musical experience. As a member of the John Adaskin Project (Canadian Music Centre), she has also written extensively on music by Canadian Composers.
