OUR MONTREAL TEAM
Originally from Chambly, Vincent Delorme completed his master's degree at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal, where he received prizes in viola and chamber music, as well as the lieutenant-governor's medal for his remarkable school and community involvement. Teachers such as Jocelyne Bastien on the viola, Denis Brott in chamber music and Éric Lagacé in jazz are the basis of his bubbling artistic inspirations, which have also been enriched by occasional courses and master classes with international violists such as as Antoine Tamestit, James Dunham and Atar Arad.
Passionate about chamber music, Vincent is a founding member of the Andara quartet, a formation with which he takes part as much in the Quebec music scene as in multiple residences, seminars and international festivals, benefiting on these occasions from the teachings of European and American masters such as as Johannes Meissl, Mathieu Erzog, the members of the Cuartetto Quiroga, the St-Lawrence String Quartet, the Shanghai Quartet and so many others.
Currently, Vincent is more involved than ever in transmitting music to all audiences, and the timeless and concrete messages it contains, through various entrepreneurial projects such as the Andara Quartet, the Jazz Minouches Trio, the social circus, teaching, poetry and composition. He also holds positions in several orchestras in Quebec, including that of solo viola and artistic advisor to the Ensemble Volte.
