Julie Trudeau

Cello

After studying with Walter Joachim, Julie Trudeau continued her training in Paris with Philippe Muller with a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec. She has performed as guest soloist with the Orchestre de chambre de l`Estrie, the symphony orchestras of Sherbrooke, Drummondville and Gatineau, and as cellist of the Molinari Quartet (2000-2007), the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and the Esprit Orchestra of Toronto.

Hailed by the press as a "top cellist" and a performer with "exceptional virtuosity and emotion," Julie Trudeau is a guest soloist and chamber musician in numerous festivals and concert organisers in America, Europe and Asia. Very committed to the new generation of musicians, she works closely with young performers and is regularly called upon to guide the creative process of young composers in contemporary music. You can hear her performances on the ATMA label, XXI-21, Naxos, CBC Drive and Radio-Canada/CBC. Julie Trudeau is a member of Quatuor Ponticello, the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne and co-founded the Trio Sela in 2014. For several years she has been teaching cello privately as well as at the École Joseph-François-Perrault of the CSDM and at the Laurentian Music Center.
