Austra's Lead Singer Katie Stelmanis Started in COC Chorus

"Toronto-based Katie Stelmanis of Austra was one of those precocious kids whose obsession with perfecting any musical instrument she picked up and whose love of singing led to her performing with the children’s choir on vast stages with the Canadian Opera Company. At 16, after 'graduating' from the children’s choir, she began studying opera until she decided that she’d had enough of confining herself to singing historical works and wanted to write her own. In her later high school years, Katie picked up a MIDI controller and started writing soundtracks, which led to her own songs. She started in a band called Galaxy and then went on as a solo artist, releasing her Join Us album in 2008." [Source]
