Marie Lèbre

Viola player

Marie Lèbre is graduated from the CRR de Paris, where she obtained a DEM in Viola and a DEM in Music Theory in 2008. Accepted into the Pôle Supérieur de Paris-Boulogne-Billancourt (in Michel Michalakakos’s viola class), she later joined the CNSMD de Lyon (in Jean-Philippe Vasseur’s class), where she earned her Master’s degree in performance in 2014. She also received guidance from Gérard Caussé, Hartmut Rohde, and Garth Knox in various masterclasses.

Supported by the Mécénat Musical Société Générale and selected to participate in the Orford International Music Academy in Canada, she refined her skills under Jutta Puchhammer during the summer of 2014. As a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra during her studies, she participated in several tours in Europe and the United States (including performances at the Konzerthaus Berlin, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall New York), under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy.

She accompanied renowned soloists such as Itzhak Perlman and Pinchas Zukerman. Since then, she has primarily focused on symphonic and operatic repertoire, regularly performing with prestigious ensembles such as the Orchestre National de France, the Orchestre de l’Opéra de Lyon, the Orchestre National de Lyon, the Orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris, the Orchestre National de Lille, and the Orchestre National de Metz. She has performed in numerous venues and festivals (including the Barbican in London, the Aix-en-Provence Festival, and the Folles Journées in Nantes…) and has traveled worldwide under the direction of conductors such as Kazushi Ono, Leonard Slatkin, Emmanuel Krivine, and William Christie.

An eclectic musician, she also devotes her energy to various projects: contemporary creation, jazz, early music, film music recordings, and chamber music with different ensembles. Passionate about music education and its dissemination to an ever-wider audience, Marie has held the Certificat d’Aptitude since 2016 and teaches Viola at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional d’Aubervilliers-la Courneuve.

She joined the Paris Mozart Orchestra in 2021.
