She has won many awards and scholarships from various music festivals such as the Athabasca Music Festival, Lac La Biche Music Festival, St. Albert Rotary Music Festival, and the Edmonton Kiwanis Music Festival.

Throughout Baille’s musical journey, she has had several provincial music festival recommendations and in 2013 she placed second in the Alberta Provincial Music Festival in the classical voice category.

Baille currently studies at the University of Manitoba, where she is finishing her degree in Music Education. Throughout the duration of her degree, she has had several opportunities to work with some of the finest musicians in the country: Tracy Dahl, Mel Braun, Elroy Friesen, and Laura Loewen, while currently studying voice with Monica Huisman. For 4 years, she has been a member of the University of Manitoba Women’s Chorus as well as the University of Manitoba’s Opera Theatre Ensemble where she has performed as a soprano lead chorister in Massenet’s Cendrillon (2019), Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta (2020), Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (2021- Susanna – lead role), and Purcell’s King Arthur (2022). Baille continues to grow as a musician and loves challenging herself. She enjoys singing in different languages and acquires a great amount of knowledge in language diction. She has performed operatic and classical repertoire in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, and Ukrainian – where she has shifted her focus onto Ukrainian opera and art song. Aside from competing and her university studies, Baille enjoys participating in charity and event concerts. She is always actively taking opportunities to perform in masterclasses and summer programs such as the Opera NUOVA Summer Intensive Program. Baille’s primary goals as a music educator is to provide her students with a healthy singing foundation and to help them discover their own unique voice while allowing them to cultivate their own musicality and skills.
