Maestro Jean-Sébastien Vallée is a rapidly rising conductor on today’s concert music stage and an internationally recognized scholar and pedagogue. Dr. Vallée is Director of Choral Studies and Chair of the Conducting Area at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University in Montréal. Prior to his appointment at McGill University, he served as Director of Choral Studies at California State University in Los Angeles, and was on the choral faculty of the University of Redlands.
In addition to his interest in choral, operatic, and orchestra music, Jean-Sébastien is an advocate for contemporary music, making one of his priorities to premiere and commission works by young composers and program rarely performed repertoire. As a scholar, Dr. Vallée has been invited to present his research at several national and international conferences including the American Choral Directors Association, Festival 500, the National Collegiate Choral Organization, Podium, the national conference of Choral Canada, the Hawaii International Conference on Arts and Humanities, and the World Symposium on Choral Music.
Maestro Vallée is also director of the renown choir of the Church of St. Andrew & St. Paul in Montreal, and Music Director of the Ottawa Choral Society. His work has been broadcast by CBC and PBS, and can be heard on several recordings, including his new recording entitled LUX (ATMA 2017).
