BIOGRAPHY

CHLOÉ MEYZIE / CONDUCTOR

Guided by passion and rigour, Chloé Meyzie is a dynamic and versatile artist who manages a dual career in conducting and musicology.

At the dawn of her career, Chloé recently became the artistic and music director of the multifaceted professional symphony orchestra of the Ensemble Instrumental de Mayenne. She will assume this responsibility for the next 3 years.

In early 2021, she supervised the creation of the Labopéra Périgord-Dordogne– a collaborative opera company, included in the national network of the Fabrique Opéra. Chloé will be conducting Carmen, the famous opera by Bizet, in 2022.

She will also make her debut with the Orchestre Colonne in September and December 2021.

During the 2021 edition of the International Conducting Competition in Bucharest, Chloé won the BMI Award (Bucharest Music Institute Award) at the end of the final round of the competition.

Cultivating a passionate interest for the orchestra very early on:
This interest feeds on a form of fascination that she experiences when the sound material is taking shape and the orchestral colours are deepening. She is mesmerised by the extent of possibilities in combining textures of sound and contrasts and by the energy and the musical power of large symphony orchestras, chamber orchestras and wind ensembles.
The concept of “orchestra” instantly submerges her entire being to resonate with every aspect of her musical experience linked with musicology, live performance and the transmission of a musical heritage.


The conservatory and musicology:
Alongside her initial training at the regional conservatory of Limoges, Chloé began studying music and musicology at university. She successfully obtained her DEM – highest diploma delivered in French regional music academies – in saxophone, chamber music and music analysis and history. She then graduated from Paris-Sorbonne (Bachelor) and the University of Tours (Master and PhD). In 2015, she became Doctor of Music and Musicology after defending a thesis on the major French jazz orchestras active from 1945 up to the present day.

Orchestral conducting, central element of her musical growth:
Chloé first received guidance in conducting from Philippe Nahon and Cecilia Weston before she joined the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Musique in Paris. After taking a training course in orchestral conducting with Dominique Rouits, she graduates the Diplôme Supérieur de Direction d’Orchestre. In France, she draws great inspiration from conductors like Aurélien Azan-Zielinski, Konstantinos Diminakis, Claire Gibault, Pierre-Michel Durand and Julien Masmondet. She also improves her technique abroad by taking part in selective American and European masterclasses. She started working with renowned maestros such as Cristian Macelaru, Christian Ehwald, Jorma Panula, Kenneth Kiesler, Marin Alsop, Sigmund Throp, Grant Llewellyn and Riccardo Frizza. Now, she often receives advice from Jin Wang, her mentor and coach.

The start of a flourishing career:
Through many inspiring projects, Chloé was able to meet outstanding artists from various regions of France and abroad (Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Greece, Romania, Hungary and the United States). She has then conducted works from the standard repertoire in collaboration with the Maggio Musicale in Florence, the Bucharest Symphony Orchestra, the Romanian Chamber Orchestra, the Camerata Regala, the Danube Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre National de Bretagne among others. She was assistant conductor during the festival Music in the Alps in 2018.
In the area of opera, she supervised the creationof the Laopéra Périgord-Dordogne – a collaborative opera company, included in the national network of the Fabrique Opéra. Chloé will be conducting Carmen, the famous opera by Bizet (April 2022).
In 2020, she experimented with baroque music and conducted Alcina by Haendel during the Académie Lyrique in Vendôme. She was also Dominique Rouits’ assistant conductor at the Opéra de Massy during the 2017-2018 musical season.
