Rachel Stewart graduated with a B.Mus. from UBC concentrating mainly on opera, as well as singing other styles. She performed leading and supporting roles as a coloratura soprano in operas around Vancouver and Vancouver Island, and in the Czech Republic. In 2012 she was nominated as one of the Jeunes Ambassadeurs Lyriques which took her to Montreal to sing. She has sang with various Swing/jazz ensembles, occasionally sang back up for different bands, and done recording for composers.
Since 2012, Rachel has been one half of vocal/guitar duo “Rachel and Ted” playing mostly swing and jazz favourites, as well as other styles, at public events/concerts, private functions, and at retirement homes.
When not singing, Rachel is often found walking, playing piano, reading, hanging out with her beautiful dog and cat, or as a blurry shape as an extra in the background of film or TV shows.
