After a scientific baccalaureate, Antoine Dutaillis was admitted at the age of sixteen to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP). He won eight First Prizes (Harmony, Counterpoint, Fugue, Orchestration, Analysis, Piano Accompaniment, Singing and Conducting), all with distinction. He also trained as a singer conductor (Erika Guiomar) and conductor (Alain Altinoglu). He was a semi-finalist in the Siemens-Hallé International Conducting Competition in Manchester. He has conducted the Orchestre National de Picardie, the Orchestre National d'Avignon-Provence, the Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire, the Hungarian-Miskolc Symphony Orchestra and the Ensemble Intercontemporain.
At the Philharmonie de Paris, he was assistant conductor to Semyon Bychkov and Alexander Briger. Very concerned with accessibility and transmission, he has been the musical director of projects that make young people aware of music, such as Le Grand Bal Modern Style at the Zenith de Paris, or the recording of a creation by Thierry Escaich with musicians from the Opéra de Paris and a choir from a diverse background. During the 2022-2023 season, he will be assistant conductor to Alexandre Bloch at the Orchestre National de Lille and to Michael Schønwandt at the Orchestre Français des Jeunes.
A generous and committed musician, the young conductor Alizé Léhon combines "graceful gestures and firmness in her direction" (InOut Côte d'Azur). She has already worked with several French orchestras such as the Ensemble Intercontemporain, the Orchestre de Picardie, the Orchestre Régional de Normandie, the Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire and the Orchestre Philharmonique de l'Opéra de Nice.
A violinist and pianist by training, she holds a degree in musicology from the Sorbonne and a degree in orchestral conducting from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, class of Alain Altinoglu.
Very involved in the dissemination of music to various audiences, Alizé conducts youth ensembles and amateur musicians. As conductor of the Orchestre Impromptu since 2019, she is involved in eclectic projects: creations of works by young composers, shows combining music and dance, tours in France and abroad.
In June 2021, she was selected by the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence to participate in the Mentoring of conductors and to deepen her knowledge of opera conducting.
Alizé has been musical director of the COGE Philharmonic since January 2022.
This season 2022-23, she is invited back by the Nice Opera Philharmonic Orchestra and will make her debut with the Orchestre National de Cannes. She also assists Michael Schønwandt at the Orchestre Français des Jeunes.
Born in 1999, Victor took his first musical steps in the percussion class of the conservatory of Toulouse, his native city.
His first orchestral experiences confirmed his nascent passion for conducting very early on, and over the years he completed his studies by taking courses in complementary piano, analysis, writing and conducting.
After completing his musical studies and a scientific course at university, he decided to devote himself to music, and entered the Paris Conservatoire in 2020, both in Alain Altinoglu's conducting class and in the advanced writing cycle.
Very interested in the relationship between music, image and dramaturgy, both in opera and cinema, Victor is co-founder of the ensemble Curieux, a collective that offers concerts of music to the image in original formats.
