Monique de Margerie is a concert pianist, collaborative musician and educator. She was trained at the Montreal Conservatory as a student of Anisia Campos and later at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich. She has taught at the Musik Hochschule in Freiburg, Germany, at Laval University in Quebec City and at the American Koenig Music Conservatory in Paris. She has toured as a soloist or collaborator in China, India, Japan, Cambodia, Germany, France, Canada and, most recently, in Italy. As a soloist she has appeared with the l'Orchestre symphonique de Québec and, in 2017, she performed Maurice Ravel's Concerto in G with members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. She has collaborated with such musicians as the conductor Helmut Rilling, Linus Roth (violin), Anne-Julie Caron ( marimba) and the late Nicholas Chumachenco (violon). In 2015, she performed Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion with Jamie Parker, Beverley Johnston and Ed Reifel at the University of Toronto's Walter Hall. In 2011, Monique moved to Toronto where she founded her own music studio sharing her passion for music, welcoming students as well as coaching and rehearsing with musicians from all over the world. Although she is excited to live in the city, her true source of connection and paradise is when she walks in the beauty of nature. Her next step is to move to the country and never retire from what she does best: play the piano and communicate her passion for music. Her solo recording of works by Beethoven, Mozart, Debussy and Brahms is available on Galley Records.
