|Artistic director and founding member of VOLTE Ensemble, Thomas Le Duc-Moreau is also Assistant Conductor in residence of Fabien Gabel at the Orchestre symphonique de Québec.
In the spring of 2018, he completed a Master's degree in Orchestral Conducting at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal under the teaching of J. Lacombe. As part of his studies, he has directed the various ensembles of this institution and acts as assistant director of the Trois-Rivieres Symphony Orchestra. In the fall of 2017, he completed an internship at the Bonn Opera House in Germany where he conducted opera Carmen.
His initiative and his desire to share his musical ideas led him to found the Beethoven Chamber Orchestra (OCB), an orchestra formed by the emerging musicians of Montreal, which held its first season in 2017-2018. The success of the OCB has led the group to continue the experience by promoting a collaborative approach. This is how the VOLTE Ensemble was created in the spring of 2018.
Thomas studied the cello at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal where he obtained a Bachelor's degree. He was a member of the Montreal Youth Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre Symphonique du Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal, the Orford Music Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra of Canada. During this last internship, he was also the assistant of English conductor M. Francis, which led him to conduct in the Canada's most prestigious venues.
