Gabrielle Gaudreault will be the new Artistic Director of the Ottawa Choral Society (OCS). Named by CBC among the 30 top classical musicians under 30, Gaudreault is already an experienced choral conductor having directed ensembles in Hamburg, Germany; Washington, DC; and Quebec. Gaudreault will lead the OCS in performances of classic and contemporary repertoire. She is the first woman to take on the artistic director’s role.
Gaudreault holds a Doctor of Musical Arts in Conducting from McGill University.
“I am delighted to be able to lead the OCS at this important moment when audiences are returning to the concert hall,” said Gaudreault, referring to the end of Covid-19 restrictions on social gatherings. “I look forward to developing and delivering a musical program to satisfy our audiences’ thirst for great choral music.”
