Après des études en Italie, elle obtient à la fois les Prix de Chant et de Musique de chambre du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris et une Maîtrise de musicologie de la Sorbonne-Paris IV.

Elle chante également lors de la création de deux opéras contemporains, Pierre-la-Tignasse de B. Bianchi et Les Aventures de Tyo de F. Bou. Passionnée de musique de chambre, Céline Laly se produit très régulièrement en récital, et travaille à divers projets en tant que soliste avec l’Ensemble baroque de Limoges (C. Coin), Les Lunaisiens (A. Marzorati et J.F. Novelli), La Risonanza (F. Bonizzoni)… À l’occasion du tricentenaire de la naissance du musicien-philosophe, Céline Laly prend part au documentaire de J-M. Djian, Jean-Jacques Rousseau musicien : l’histoire méconnue d’une passion contrariée (diffusion sur Arte et édition DVD).  Convaincue de la pertinence du croisement de diverses formes artistiques, elle fonde la Compagnie Le Vieil Or de la dernière syllabe, menant ainsi une réflexion collective autour de la rencontre entre musique et littérature. Plusieurs concerts-lectures et spectacles musicaux naissent de ce travail, et donnent lieu à de régulières représentations.
