Once upon a time, there was a fairy... Despite her efforts to go unnoticed, she was often told that she had fairy-like nimble fingers and a fairy-like voice. In the high school yearbook, she was caricatured... as a fairy.
At the age of 18, she strangely realized that her songs could bring light into people's hearts. She had been considering a career in law or psychology, and this discovery troubled her. Consequently, she didn't do much about it, much to the disappointment of those around her. Her music had always been her secret garden, and she didn't feel ready to share it.
Today, she embraces her true nature: learning, creating, sharing and marveling!
Based in Montreal, Isabelle Fleury has a multidisciplinary background : criminology, music, performing arts, teaching, languages, and creative writing. She has won awards, produced an album, and several shows as a singer-songwriter. She has also created numerous arrangements for mixed choirs and children's choirs. She innovates in music teaching by developing and sharing educational resources. In 2022, she ventured into choral direction in schools in collaboration with the artist Ariane Moffatt.
Currently, she is working on researching and writing biographical children's books about forgotten female composers through history. Driven by her passion for music and its unifying abilities, she is also seeking to incorporate Quebec Sign Language and Innu-Aimun into her compositions in partnership with Deaf and Indigenous communities.
From Aube (Dawn) to Crépuscule (Dusk), via the Midday Intermède (Interlude), the original songs of Duo, sometimes serious and sometimes funny, evoke dreams and the imagination.
