Pianist, Sylvie Beaudoin is a well respected chamber musician and accompanist established in Maryland since 1999. Ms Beaudoin has been performing chamber music regularly for concert series in the region, most notably with several members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, including principal chairs. She has been heard as a collaborative pianist and soloist in concerts and broadcasts across Canada and the United States, as well as in France, Spain and Japan, alongside musicians from major orchestras and opera houses around the world.
Her repertoire reaches over 460 works from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. She especially enjoys opportunities to present lesser known chamber music compositions from the romantic and modern eras.
Ms Beaudoin is also a devoted music instructor, having taught consistently since 1982 in music schools, festivals, colleges, universities and her own private piano studios. In 2002, she founded the Sylvie Beaudoin Piano Studio located in Howard County, providing a highly personalized, innovative and broad curriculum for all her students. In 2009-2010, she was an Artist in Residence and Lecturer at the University of Maryland Honors College where she created and taught a new undergraduate study abroad course titled “Music and the Arts in Paris at the Turn of the 20th Century: Making it New!” From 1991 to 1993, she held a two-year Teaching Assistantship position at the University of British Columbia, teaching piano to undergraduate students. She taught chamber music to teenagers and adults as Teaching Assistant for the Kneisel Hall Young Musicians Program and the Kneisel Hall Amateur Chamber Music Institute during the summer 1998. From 1994 to 2004, she held teaching positions at music schools in Quebec, British Columbia and Maryland.
Ms Beaudoin is the recipient of numerous awards, prizes and scholarships. She studied with acclaimed Canadian pianist Jane Coop at the University of British Columbia to complete her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Piano Performance in 1993. She also studied privately or in masterclasses with several other distinguished musicians in North America and abroad. During the 1990’s, she gradually came to specialize in chamber music, as well as in instrumental and vocal accompanying. To that end, she did residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts and the Pacific Music Festival of Sapporo in addition to further studies at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival in Maine.
