Montreal-based mezzo soprano Maude Brunet is known for her warm, rich tone and expressive musicality. Her sensitive artistry and refined singing have made her a highly sought-after singer, performing with many of Canada’s most prestigious ensembles, including Les Voix Baroques, Ottawa Chamberfest, Orford Festival, Early Music Vancouver and Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal.

Concert highlights for Maude Brunet include Bach’s Psalm 61 at Lanaudière Festival with Les Violons du Roy, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with Montreal Symphony Orchestra, and Handel’s Messiah with Laval Symphony Orchestra under Alain Trudel. 2016 marked her debut with Trois-Rivières Symphony Orchestra in Mozart’s Requiem under Jacques Lacombe.

A talented singing actress, Maude drew praise as Costanza – “her voice has an alluring black coffee colour” – in Haydn’s L’Isola Disabitata with Ottawa’s Thirteen Strings, and she enchanted the audience as Lazuli in L’Étoile with Société d’Art Lyrique du Royaume.

A frequent soloist with Matthias Maute's acclaimed Ensemble Caprice, Maude starred in Juditha Triumphans, which won the 2014 Opus Prize for Concert of the Year – Baroque Music.

This season, concert engagements include Choeur St-Laurent (Bach Cantatas), Guelph Chamber Choir (Messiah), Menno Singers (Messiah), and Ensemble Caprice (Bach Cantatas).

In 2017, Maude looks forward to her debut with Orchestre symphonique de Québec in Mozart’s Requiem under the baton of Enrique Mazzola
