Dir. Jeremie Couleau
After studying piano, Jérémie Couleau devoted himself to singing and received lessons from Luc Terrieux, Omar Ganidzé, Christian Crozes, Lucien Kandel, Julie Hassler and Florian Westphal. He performs as a soloist in oratorio (Bach, Charpentier, Scarlatti), but also in recitals (Dowland, Caccini).
Passionate about polyphonies, Jérémie is a member of Musica Nova, Scandicus, Non Pareilhe and occasionally participates in the musical projects of other renowned early music ensembles (Doulce Mémoire, Chronochromie ...). He performs in major festivals (Saintes, Utrecht, Ambronay, La Chaise-Dieu, Royaumont, Sylvanès, Thoronet, Odyssud, Toulouse les Orgues, Vezelay, Quito, Rio de Janeiro ...), and sings in numerous discographic recordings critically acclaimed (golden tuning fork, choc classica, editor choice gramophone).
His commitment to the interpretation of ancient music naturally led him to take the musical direction of the Scandicus ensemble for ten years before founding La Quintina in 2019.
In addition to his activity as a singer, Jérémie Couleau is professeur agrégé and doctor in musicology. This university career commits him to reflect on the restitution and transmission of musical repertoires from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. He teaches in high school and university, participates in internships with amateur or professional singers, and regularly participates in conferences devoted to the study of the history of music (ARPA, Toulouse Occitan Conservatory, CESR, ENS -LSH, Center for Medieval Studies Montpellier, GREAM Strasbourg, Catholic University of Louvain ...).
