Valerie Milot
Valerie MilotYoung Québec harpist Valérie Milot, described as “very refined” artist by La Presse, Montréal, has an impeccable technique and is such a colourful and powerful musician that she challenges all the clichés about her instrument.

After receiving the “Prix avec grande distinction” and the Wilfrid-Pelletier bursary, awarded unanimously by the jury, upon completion of her studies at the Conservatoire de musique de Trois-Rivières with Caroline Lizotte, Valerie pursued her training in New York with worldrenowned harpist Rita Costanzi. Valérie has received numerous competition awards, including the prestigious Prix d’Europe 2008, becoming the first harpist in almost 100 years to receive this honour. She also won the Special Prize for best interpretation of a contemporary work at the International harp Competition of the Cité des Arts in Paris in November 2008.

Valérie’s career as a soloist and chamber musician has been consistently rising over the past few years. She has performed with many orchestras, including Les Violons du Roy from Quebec City, and she gave a recital at the Lanaudière international festival. In 2011, she performed for the first time outside Canada, in Switzerland (Geneva) and in Brazil at the Rio de Janeiro international Harp Festival. More recently, she travelled to France to take part in the CAMAC Harp Festival, in Angers. Valérie is an Artist-in-residence at the Conservatoire de musique de Trois-Rivières until the 2013-2014 season. She has already released 4 recordings with the prestigious Canadian label Analekta, and her fifth, Watercolors, is coming up in September 2012.
