Promising new conductor Léa Moisan-Perrier approaches conducting with sensitivity, rigour and verve. A student at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal in Jacques Lacombe’s class, she stands out for her versatility and the quality of her interaction with the musicians.
In 2018, she assisted Maestro Lacombe at the Opéra National du Rhin for the production of Offenbach’s Barkouf. In addition, her career experience includes assistant to Gilles Auger at the I Medici orchestra and as a participant in the Medomak Conductor’s Retreat. She has also perfected her skills by participating in various masterclasses, including a class organised by the OSM with Rafael Payare last spring.
Concurrently to her orchestral conducting work, she is pursuing a career as a choral conductor. Artistic director of the Montreal Children’s Choir, she leads the organization’s ambitious and refined programs in pushing its limits, and in performing with different ensembles of professional musicians. She is also the artistic director and founder of Les Voix parallèles choir at the École de musique Vincent-d’Indy. Driven by the quality and vitality of the direction, the ensemble attracts high-level choristers and tackles an a capella repertoire as well as works such as the German Requiem and the Psalm Symphony. Les Voix parallèles participated in the production of Massenet’s Cendrillon at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal in the winter of 2020.
Léa Moisan-Perrier is also trained as a pianist, singer and choral conductor. A piano graduate from the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, she went on to complete a master’s degree in choral conducting at the Université de Sherbrooke and a bachelor’s degree in classical singing at the Université de Montréal. She is the recipient of the 2016 Moulin Seigneurial Scholarship and the Iwan Edwards Prize awarded by Andrew Megill.
