Canada, Toronto Ontario Violin
Radio Canada’s Classical Revelation for 2020-2021, violinist, violist, vocalist, and pianist Isabella D’Éloize Perron is certainly one of the rare artists who could be thought of as a prodigy. Her style of play shows astonishing maturity and musicality that is both sincere and unique. She had her debut as a soloist at the age of 7 with the I Musici String Ensemble, and has since appeared with numerous orchestras, including the Orchestre Métropolitain (Montréal), the Pall Peninsula Symphony (San Francisco), National Theater Orchestra (Prague), the Calgary Philharmonic, and the Vancouver Symphony.
Between 2010 and 2017, Isabella studied at the Mount Royal University’s Royal Conservatory of Music in Alberta with violinist Bill Van der Sloot. Some of her other mentors include internationally acclaimed violinists Andres Cardenes, Ian Swensen, and Gwen Hoebig. She has also played in masterclass for numerous artists across the globe including Tadeusz Gadzina, Ning Feng, Noah Bendix-Balgley, Pinchas Zukerman, and Stefan Jakiw. Awards and distinctions include first prize at the National Music Festival of Canada (2014), first prize at the International Radio Competition for Young Musicians Concertino Praga (2015), second prize at the Klein International String Competition (2015), and second prize at CMC’s Stepping Stone (2019). During their 2017-2018 season, The Calgary Philharmonic named her as their “Emerging Artist”. Most recently, Isabella was awarded NYO’s Michael Measures Prize through the Canada Council for the Arts for NYO’s 2020 season. She is currently pursuing her BMus with Erika Raum at the Glenn Gould School in Toronto.
Isabella is also well-versed in popular/jazz music - she was heard throughout Quebec on “La Cour des Grands” (CBC) as a violinist and singer in the fall of 2008, and in several concerts in Quebec and the United States. From 2009-2011, she played a major part in the show “MusicMan”, performing more than 80 shows across Quebec. In 2011, she released her first album titled Isabella 12 where she sings francophone songs and improvises on violin.
