node / VANCOUVER - Café des Arts: Music

Le Café des Arts, co-organized by the Alliance Française of Vancouver and the cultural services of the French Embassy in Canada, with the participation of Aurelia Bizouard, is a new event that gives local artists a chance to speak in a friendly place, thus opening the discussion with the public.

Our 2 speakers will be:

ELEA SAUNIER

Eléa Saunier is a 20 year old bilingual artist who has been living in Vancouver since 2011. Éléa is originally from France but has lived in Québec for 11 years.

At 14 years old, she starts to write her own songs. The next winter, she records 4 of her compositions at Productions Chaumont Studio in Mont-Tremblant. Following the recording session, Éléa shoots her first videoclip for one of her song, Une Française à Montréal with Pascal Chaumont behind the camera.

At the end of summer 2011, Éléa and her family move to Vancouver. Soon enough, she starts singing and performing at her high school and within the francophone community.

2012-2013 is a busy year for Éléa. She finds herself with many professional gigs : opening act for Lisa Leblanc (a well-known francophone singer-songwriter), Nouvelle Scène (a show to present new/emerging francophones artists), Fête de la St-Jean in Kamloops, Dîner en Blanc in Vancouver. She also participates to a contest called Pacifique en chanson where she wins Coup de Cœur (Public’s choice) and Chanson Primée (Best Song) with one of her originals « La Scène avant le show ».

Éléa is eventually accepted in the Musical Theatre and the Jazz program at Capilano University. She chooses the Jazz program and starts in September 2013. By the end of 2013, she is part of a TV Show with her dad and sister, taking place in Québec, Un Air de Famille airing on Radio-Canada, and is coached there by Bruno Pelletier.

In 2014, she creates her own band, Chic Soirée, with some of her musician friends from the Jazz program. The band performs in many different events such as Make Music Vancouver (2014 and 2015), Dîner en Blanc (2015),  Maple Syrup Festival in Kelowna and other various private events. That same year, she joins NiteCap under the direction of Réjean Marois.

In 2015, she sings at Afterlife Studio in Vancouver on the francophone jazz musical album Le Destin du Jazz-Club!, in which she plays the role of Eleanore Jocqueres. In June 2015, she is part of the live performance during the 30th Vancouver International Jazz Festival. That same summer, she participates at another TV show Jam 4 where she performs her song « Je Pense À Toi » in front of 6000 people at the fancophone festival Les Francofolies in Montréal. In August, she auditions and get accepted, as a jazz soloist/vocalist, to join a masterclass at Domaine Forget (Québec) with David Linx and Réjean Marois.

 In October 2015, she sings on a christmas jingle for Sears at Koko Productions. The jingle airs on radio and TV.

ANNE DURANCEAU

Anne Duranceau was born in Montreal, spent several years of her early childhood in equatorial Africa and then lived in Quebec City until 1994.

She studied French literature, and then fell in love with the contrabass... She did her Bachelor's Degree in Music at Laval University and then moved to Tucson, where she obtained her Master’s Degree in Music from the University of Arizona. She also traveled around the world to participate in many workshops and festivals where she had the opportunity to work with virtuoso contrabassist François Rabbath as well as several masters of international renown.

Anne moved to British Columbia in 1995. Aside from being Principal Bass for Sinfonia, she plays contrabass with the Absinthe Ensemble string trio and the klezmer group Mad Nomad, and she freelances with various orchestras and chamber ensembles.

Her increasing interest in early music sees her getting more and more involved as a viola da gamba player (on bass viol), with Vancouver Viols and with the Historical Performance Ensemble (period dance).

Anne also works for Radio Canada (CBC), as researcher (music), associate producer, technician, communications officer, media librarian and more, according to the needs of the CBC.


Each participant will speak for 20 minutes followed up by a Q&A. Stick around after the event to enjoy wine and cheese with us!
