February 16ᵗʰ will bring the unique combination of the deep tones of the trombone with the strength of the organ. Trombonist Jean-Mathieu Royer has been a long-time acquaintance, through the implication of his mother and uncle in the organ and liturgical worlds, but the musical collaboration had never blossomed before this season.
A musician since his childhood, Jean-Mathieu graduated with honours from the Montreal Conservatoire of Music, obtaining his master’s degree in 2016. He has played in a variety of music ensembles throughout the greater Montreal area, be it classical, jazz or popular. He also participated in the recording of numerous discs as a trombonist, one of them being recorded live during a festival in Germany in 2009, which was broadcasted on German cultural radio.
Jean-Mathieu is currently part of various groups as a musician and arranger, including the ska francophone group Les Happycuriens, which he joined in 2012. His versatility on the trombone makes him a complete instrumentalist.
