Alain Trudel
Music director of Orchestra London, l’Orchestre Symphonique de Laval, the National Broadcast Orchestra, as well as Principal Guest Conductor of the Victoria Symphony Orchestra, Alain Trudel is one of the most sought after conductors on the Canadian Scene.
A frequent guest with the National Arts Centre Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra Trudel will make his debut with l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, the Gävle Symphony Orchestra (Sweden), and with the Saint-Petersburg Cappella Symphony Orchestra during the 2010-2011 season.
Trudel made his Opera de Montréal debut in 2009, Conducting Mozart’s The Magic Flute, as well as the 30th anniversary gala, which was released as a live CD and nominated at L’ADISQ. In 2010 he will make his debut at l’Opéra de Quebec.
Highly committed to the new generation of musicians, Trudel is the conductor of the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra, and has been regularly invited to conduct the National Youth Orchestra of Canada. Their recording of Mahler’s 6th Symphony and Le sacre du prinptemps was nominated as “Best Orchestral Album of the Year” at the 2010 Juno Awards.
Beyond the borders of Canada, Trudel has conducted orchestras in the UK, the USA, Japan, Hong-Kong and in Latin America. Highly appreciated for his collaborative spirit, he has worked with many world famous artists, among them Ben Heppner, Anton Kuerti, Measha Brueggergosman, Pinchas Zukermann and Isabel Bayrakdarian.
First known to the public as a trombone soloist, Alain Trudel made his solo debut at the age of 18, with Charles Dutoit with l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal. He has been guest soloist with leading orchestras on five continents, and was the first Canadian to be a Yamaha international artist.
Alain is very happy to come back to his roots, as he will be Hannaford Street Silver Band’s principal guest conductor at the start of the 2010-2011season.
Alain Trudel is the recipient of numerous Awards, among them the Virginia Parker, Le grand prix du disque Président de la République de l’Académie Charles Cros (France), and more recently the Heinz Unger Prize for conducting. He has also been named an Ambassador of Canadian Music by the CMC.
