Jacynthe Riverin
J acynthe Riverin studied at the Conservatoire de Musique du Québec à Montreal, and later earned a masters degree from Laval University. Grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec enabled her to perfect her craft with Dominique Weber in Geneva (Switzerland).

In 2000 Riverin won the Montreal Symphony Orchestra’s concerto competition and made her debut with this orchestra during the same year with a performance of Prokofiev’s Concerto No. 2. She was invited to perform with the orchestra the following year, under the direction of Charles Dutoit. Since then she has appeared with a number of orchestras in performances of works by Mozart, Ravel, Beethoven, Chopin and Shostakovitch.
 
Recent highlights include an acclaimed performance of Michel Gonneville’s Adonwe for piano and orchestra at the MNM Festival and the creation of Analia Lludgar's piano concerto Que sommes-nous? with the Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal, work commissioned by Radio-Canada.

Through performances of both classical and contemporary music, Riverin has made her mark on the musical world with a highly varied repertoire, including Chinese music with George Gao, and South American music with flutist René Orea. She has taken up the cause of the music of all ages, with particular attention to new works and performances of contemporary music from both here and abroad. An active and sought-after chamber musician, she performed for a number of years with saxophonist Mathieu Gaulin and was part of the 2008-09 Jeunesses Musicales du Canada tour with him. In 2011, Gaulin-Riverin duo released their first album, Brillance (Analekta).
