Julie Daoust, soprano

Montreal soprano Julie Daoust has established a strong following in the French speaking communities and is continuing to gain critical acclaim across Canada for her elegantly poised vocal performances. Recently, she was soloist for Vaudreuil-Soulanges Choir in Carmina Burana and Joliette's Museum Choir in Mendelssohn's Hör mein Bitten and Schubert's Mass in Eb. She also made her début with London Symphony Orchestra in Brahms' German Requiem and with Pacific Opera Victoria as Crobyle in their production of Massenet's Thais. A former member of the Atelier Lyrique de l'Opréa de Montréal (between 2005 and 2007), Julie completed her doctoral studies in Voice Performance at Université de Montréal, Canada.

Recent operatic roles include Ghita (Zemlinsky's Der Zwerg), Lia (Debussy's L'Enfant prodigue), Clarice (Haydn's Il Mondo della luna), Annina (La Traviata), La Seconda Cercatrice () and Miss Jessel (Britten's Turn of the Screw). Passionate of French Art Songs and Lieder, Julie Daoust has given several recitals and numerous concerts for many organisms, including Montreal Chamber Music Festival, Summer Music Festival in Barachois and Orford Festival, Anna-Malenfant Festival in Memramcook and Caraquet Acadian Festival. Over the years, she also worked as a soloist in oratorio works with several ensembles as the legendary Disciples de Massenet, the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Choir, the Choir of Laval, Lorraine Singers and Cantabile Choir and Orchestra, among others.

To perfect her artistry and her instrumental approach, she participated in many important stages at the Franz-Schubert-Institute (2010) and Sommer Lied Weinberg (2008), both in Austria. She also participated to the International Vocal Arts Institute in Tel Aviv (2007), where she won the Silverman Foundation Scholarship for most promising international artist, Canadian Institute of Vocal Arts (from 2004 to 2007) and she was a member of the Young Artists Program of the Steans Institute (Ravinia) in 2004. She studied with great masters such as Lady Elly Ameling, Rudolf Jansen, Helmut Deutsch, Wolfgang Holzmair, Martin Isepp, Roger Vignoles, Malcolm Martineau, Denise Massé, Cesar Ulloa, Paul Nadler, Craig Rutenberg, Margo Garrett and Joan Dornemann for name a few.

Sought-after teacher, Julie Daoust is now on the faculty of the University of Montreal, Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and SUNY Potsdam - Crane School of Music.
