Ellen Marple

Ellen Marple originally took up the trombone with dreams of playing jazz (swing, specifically) then became fascinated with the incredible versatility of the trombone, immersing herself in style and technique across genres from early music to contemporary compositions. As a freelancer, she can be found doing studio work, performing with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, The Little Chamber Music Series that Could, the Hard Rubber Orchestra, or poring over big band charts in her role as Director of the Dal Richards School of Swing at the Vancouver Academy of Music. She also teaches at the St James Music Academy which provides free music education in the DTES. Ellen directs her own project, Diving for Rocks, an electro-acoustic collaboration-based ensemble.
