Her roles include Despina (UK Opera Theatre), Belinda in (Bourbon Baroque’s 2015 production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Gretel, Musetta, Cendrillon and Monica. Dr. Duclos was particularly prolific in Baroque music and performed with renowned Canadian orchestras and ensembles which included a broadcast of Bach’s motets by the BBC public radio. Since moving to Kentucky with her family in 2010, she has been a repetitive soloist with The Kentucky Bach Choir, the UK Opera Theater, the UK Orchestra, the Bourbon Baroque early music ensemble, and The Lexington Singers. Throughout her career, she was awarded several prizes including the First Prize of the Audrey Rooney Kentucky Bach Choir Competition in 2014, a fellowship to attend the Canadian Institute of Vocal Arts, and an Alltech scholarship in 2016. Dr. Duclos has a master’s degree from the University of Montreal and earned a DMA in voice performance from the University of Kentucky in 2019. She loves her role as a pedagogue as much as performing and is excited to be teaching Voice, Vocal Diction and Vocal Pedagogy at Asbury University.
