Originally from Repentigny, Quebec, Canadian pianist Jean-Luc Therrien has been actively performing in Canada and abroad. In 2016, he toured across Quebec and the Maritimes as part of the Jeunesses Musicales Canada’s Emerging Artists Concerts on tour, with a program which included his own transcription of Franz Liszt's symphonic poem Les Préludes. A few months later, he also made his orchestral debut in Asia with the Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra.

Over the years, Jean-Luc has stood out in many competitions such as the Luigi Zanuccoli International Music Competition (Chamber Music Prize), the Mauro Paolo MonoCompetition’s Stepping), etc. Moreover, he won the Soloists Competition of the Trois-Rivières Music Conservatory four times and consequently performed several concerts with the conservatory’s orchestra as well as the Orchestre Symphonique de Trois-Rivières. Jean-Luc was also awarded several prizes, including the Gilles-Gauthier Excellence Award, the Wilfrid-Pelletier Excellence Award and the Governor General of Canada’s Academic medal, as well as a grant from the Canadian Council for the Arts, which allowed him to pursue postgraduate studies in Austria in 2016-17.

A graduate of the Trois-Rivières Music Conservatory, Jean-Luc received his Master’s degree in Piano Performance from the Mozarteum University in Salzburg. His principal professors have included Denise Trudel, Cordelia Höfer-Teutsch and George Kern.

In 2015, he was also the laureate of the Young Bozar Project within the Alternative Violin Duet 2 Väinö. With this duet, he focuses on developing new alternatives to traditional concerts, mixing art forms and means of expression.

Later, he entered the Brussels Royal Conservatory of Music (Belgium) in the studio of Veronique Bogaerts, where he received his degrees with high distinction and was granted the Pappaerts Prize in 2016, as a reward for an exceptional academic path. Currently, he is a postgraduate student at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna (Austria) in the class of Michael Frischenschlager.
