After studying oboe, theatre and voice, Jean-François Daignault has focused primarily on folk, early and contemporary music.

He has sung the famous “roasted swan solo” from Orff’s Carmina Burana numerous times, including at the Festival de Lanaudière amphitheatre and at the Maison Symphonique de Montréal.

Jean-François is the cofounder of Ensemble ALKEMIA, a vocal trio that explores a capella repertoire from the last millenium. He also plays early wind instruments, composes and arranges music, and works regularly as musical director for a variety of projects. He also enjoys exploring Montréal’s underground art scene, through performances which explore phantasy, transformation and the voice.
