One of our TEAm members started working with the company when she was a university student. Shannon has worked at the Lady Baker’s Tea Booth at the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market, at our tea booth at the original Founder’s Hall, Avonlea Village and our many office/wholesale locations we have occupied over the years. Shannon is an integral part of the company and keeps the public informed of all things tea by managing our social media accounts, marketing and working on product development.
Shannon’s Instagram page lists that she is - Soprano, Mama, Tea Enthusiast and I would say that is a very accurate description. While tea is an important part of Shannon’s everyday life, music and her family are her other loves.
Shannon studied vocal performance at the University of Prince Edward Island under the direction of Sung Ha Shin Bouey; receiving her Bachelor of Music in 2010. Following her post-secondary education, Shannon moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where she studied under Soprano, Lucy Hayes Davis. She is currently studying with renowned Trinidadian Soprano, Jeanine De Bique and is loving this deeper exploration of her sound. She has performed with award winning choirs, Sirens, Halifax Camerata Singers and Xara Choral Theatre (where she was a featured soloist on their ECMA nominated album), as well as Opera Nova Scotia and the Symphony Nova Scotia Chorus. Throughout her professional career, she has been a featured soloist in works by Handel, Rossini, Dvorak, Jenkins, Gounod, and more. When she is not making music, you can find her on her yoga mat, or with a cup of tea in hand or enjoying time with her young son, Sam.
We are grateful for Shannon’s knowledge, enthusiasm and ability to make a good pot of tea for all of our meetings at Lady Baker’s Tea.
