Pierre Rancourt

Baritone, Canada

For over 10 years now, baritone Pierre Rancourt has been collaborating with the Opéra de Montréal on a variety of mediation, education, and outreach activities, ranging from school tours and workshops for clienteles with special needs, to cultural mediation activities for the general public. Over the years, he has reached thousands of people, young and old alike, with his passion and natural empathy, while acquiring strong practical experience in the area of art-based outreach. With a busy career as a soloist whose voice is distinguished by its warmth and communicative abilities, he is also a supporter of music by Canadian composers (premieres of works by Éric Champagne, Alain Gagnon, Alfred La Liberté, and Auguste Descarries) and a creator of shows and workshops; his production Carlos Gardel: Dialogue avec le roi du tango, which highlights interculturalism, recently received the Conseil des arts de Montréal en tournée’s People’s Choice Award.
