Congratulations Ottewell resident Audrey Ochoa, ’09 BMus, ’09 BEd Alumni Award of Excellence!
Is Audrey Ochoa a teacher who loves music or a musician who loves to teach? Either way, the award-winning trombonist and inspiring educator is hitting all the right notes, bringing her innovative sounds to appreciative ears in Edmonton and beyond.
Ochoa studied classical trombone, but her creative spirit thrives on variety: jazz, pop, Latin, punk and ska. She won the prestigious Edmonton Music Prize in 2019 to the delight of fellow musicians whose hearts she won long ago for her work as a creator, collaborator and performer.
A teacher with Edmonton Catholic Schools for the last decade, Ochoa combines her love of music with dedication to her students as she teaches them about teamwork and commitment while giving them an appreciation for the arts.
