Meet Jeanne Côté, a Canadian violinist living in Montréal.

Originally from Sherbrooke, the young violinist Jeanne Côté stands out for the sensitivity of her playing. She obtained her master’s degree from McGill University, in the class of Axel Strauss and holds a bachelor’s degree from the Conservatory of Music of Montreal in the class of Johanne Arel. Jeanne is the winner of the second prize of the Music Competition Festival
Sherbrooke 2019.

Jeanne is one of the founding members of the string quartet named Quatuor Andara, a young chamber music ensemble noted across Canada. Aside from her great devotion to chamber music, she loves to share her passion for music through teaching, which led her to go and teach in France during the summer of 2014. She currently gives violin lessons at the Cooperative of Music Teachers of Montreal.

She has a great interest in new music. It was to perfect and share the music of young Quebec composers that she carried out an artistic residency in Portugal, followed by a tour in Belgium in June 2019.
