Originally from Evian, France, Mezzo-Soprano Joëlle Morris has performed throughout Europe and the United States. She is admired for her versatility, from the concert stage to the operatic arena, in intimate jazz settings and French cabaret or simply sharing her gifts as a conductor, voice teacher, educator and coach. Joëlle holds a Bachelor of Music from the University of Colorado, Boulder and a Master in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from the Lamont Conservatory in Denver, Colorado. 

Since relocating to Maine in 2011, Joëlle has appeared with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, the Mozart Mentor Orchestra, the Augusta Symphony and is regularly a featured artist at Colby College, Bates College, Bowdoin College, the Franco Center, Waterville Opera House, Nordica Auditorium, the Colby Jazz Faculty Ensemble, King’s Chapel in Boston, the Back Cove Festival and the Early Music Festival in Portland.
