Performer (harp)

Éveline Grégoire-Rousseau began to study piano before the age of 6, then turned to the harp at the age of 12. She has received a certificate from the Manhattan School of Music, where she had a full scholarship to study with the harpist of the Metropolitan opera, Deborah Hoffman. She also holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from McGill University, where she studied with Jennifer Swartz, who is renowned worldwide. Ms. Grégoire-Rousseau has participated in many classes abroad, in particular in Colorado at the aspen Music Festival and school. For many years, she has contributed to the flowering of orchestral music in Quebec by playing regularly with the orchestras of the province, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal. She is a frequent harpist with les Violons du Roy and le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne. She is a member of the Chamber Orchestra Punctum, a new ensemble composed exclusively by plucked strings instruments: harp, harpsichord and guitar. Punctum is rooted in the creation process, and performs many world-class premiere works by contemporary composers. Éveline enjoys bringing the harp to uncommun fields, playing with main lead pop singers and various bands.
