On March 11th, David Jalbert will appear for the second time on our stage. We first heard him in 2007 as part of our Discovery series.
Jalbert was born in 1977 in Rimouski, Québec. He started playing at the age of 4 and earned his Masters at 21 from the Université de Montréal, with the Governor General’s Gold Medal. He has performed with many of our Canadian symphonies including Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Calgary Philharmonic, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and National Arts Centre Orchestra. As a solo pianist, he has toured Canada, the US, Mexico and Europe. In 2008, Jalbert joined the faculty at the University of Ottawa’s School of Music. He continues to teach there as a professor of piano.
A Juno award nominee, Jalbert has released several CDs. His most recent solo CD is the Bach Goldberg Variations. This is also what we will have the pleasure of hearing live on our stage in March! You can see and hear more of David Jalbert on his website at http://davidjalbert.com/audio-and-video/
