      Jean-Marie Zeitouni (french only)

      Jean-Marie Zeitouni est reconnu comme l’un des plus brillants chefs d’orchestre de sa génération pour son style expressif et convaincant, dans un répertoire qui va du baroque à la musique contemporaine. Il est diplômé du Conservatoire de musique de Montréal en direction d’orchestre, en percussion et en écriture musicale, institution où il a étudié notamment avec Raffi Armenian. Il est présentement le directeur artistique de l’Orchestre de chambre I Musici de Montréal et le premier chef invité du Colorado Music Festival. Au fil des ans, Jean-Marie Zeitouni a été directeur musical du Colorado Music Festival, du Columbus Symphony en Ohio, du programme d’opéra au Banff Center, assistant chef d’orchestre et directeur des chœurs à l’Opéra de Montréal ainsi que directeur musical de leur Atelier lyrique, chef de chœur à l’Orchestre symphonique de Québec et à l’Opéra de Québec et directeur musical de l’orchestre et de l’atelier d’opéra de l’Université Laval. Avec Les Violons du Roy, orchestre avec lequel il connut une fructueuse collaboration d’une douzaine d’années, il occupa tour à tour les fonctions de chef en résidence, de chef associé et de premier chef invité.

      Très apprécié comme chef lyrique, il a récemment dirigé l’Orchestre national de Montpellier et l’Orchestre national de Lorraine à Nancy. Parmi les nombreux orchestres que Jean-Marie Zeitouni a dirigés au Canada, mentionnons les orchestres symphoniques de Montréal, de Toronto, de Québec, d’Edmonton, de Calgary, de Vancouver, de Winnipeg, d’Halifax, de Victoria, de Kitchener-Waterloo et de London ainsi que l’Orchestre du Centre national des Arts, l’Ensemble Arion et le Club musical de Québec. À l’étranger, il a entre autres dirigé les orchestres symphoniques de Tucson, Houston, de l’Oregon, de Monterey, de San Antonio, d’Omaha, de Honolulu, de Huntsville et de Cincinnati, de même que la Handel and Haydn Society de Boston, le Pacific Symphony, le Seattle Symphony Orchestra, le Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, le Philharmonique de Marseille, le Xalapa Symphony, le National Symphony of Mexico, le Hong Kong Philharmonic, l’Arco Ensemble et le Detroit Symphony. En 2019-2020, Jean-Marie Zeitouni a eu le privilège de retourner à trois reprises au Edmonton Symphony à titre de partenaire artistique. Il dirigera à nouveau l’Opéra national de Lorraine, l’Opéra de Québec et l’Orchestre symphonique et lyrique de Nancy.
