I have been conducting choirs since 1998, choirs and orchestras since 2008. I am the chapel master of the St-Nicolas Parish in Cannes (Choeur de ND de Bon Voyage) and I have regular choirs on the French Riviera (La Sestina and Compagnie Madame Croche). I am sometimes invited by choirs as a clinician, by festivals to conduct workshops, or to collaborate as a choir master on an opera production (Elisir d’Amore by Donizetti, La Bohème by Puccini, Moïse et Pharaon by Rossini, …). I also do workshops in high-schools to prepare the students to sing and move on staged concerts with Orchestre Régional de Cannes, which I have been collaborating with since 2017.
My repertoire with choir includes all kinds of music, from gregorian chant to contemporary music, as well as musicals and improvisation.
