Anne-Julie Caron

Canadian percussionist Anne-Julie Caron is recognized by the greatest masters of her field as one of the most remarkable talents of her generation. Mainly recognized as a marimbist, Miss Caron’s rapidly blooming career as an orchestral soloist, chamber musician and recitalist is causing her to be sought after both in Canada and abroad. She has brilliantly performed in solo recitals as well as with orchestras such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and the Quebec Symphony Orchestra. Anne-Julie Caron has won the 2nd Prize and a recording contract with Classic Records (Europe) at the International Marimba Competition Linz 2006 and two of the most prestigious Canadian competitions: The Montreal Symphony Orchestra Competition (2005) and the Prix d’Europe (2004). She was also chosen as “Laureate de Quebec” by Le Soleil and Radio-Canada. Ms. Caron’s sensational performances astonish with their deepness, colors and sensitivity.
