Médéric will have the opportunity to play regularly as a soloist (Mozart bassoon concerto with the CRR orchestra of Lille, Pleyel concertante with the Orchestre des Lauréats du CNSMD, etc.) and to record in 2008 Hummel's Grand Concerto for bassoon with orchestra.

 

In parallel with these studies, he obtained a position as a bassoonist in the Mobile Gendarmerie Orchestra in 2005, and played as principal bassoon in 2012 with the Ulster Orchestra (Northern Ireland). He also often performs with the most prestigious ensembles such as the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, the Orchestre de Paris, the Opéra National de Paris, the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, etc... under the baton of the greatest conductors.

 

Médéric is fully committed to the creation and dissemination of contemporary repertoire. He is a member of the Multilateral Ensemble, Ensemble C Barré and works with Ensemble Cairn and Musicatreize. He is also co-creator of the company Espace Public, which brings together dancers, musicians and actors to share and mediate with a variety of audiences.
