BIOGRAPHY

Isabella started playing the violin at the age of 2 and gave her first concerts at age 5. Her guest appearances with orchestra include Orchestre Métropolitain (Montréal) and the I Musici String Ensemble, all before the age of 10; she has also appeared as a soloist with the Peninsula Symphony (San Francisco, CA), with the National Theater Orchestra (Prague National Theater), the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Vancouver Symphony, the Lethbridge Symphony and many other orchestras across Canada and the United States.

Isabella’s charisma captivates her audience. Claude Gingras of La Presse described her as “a violinist who plays with the assurance of professional musicians, with momentum and accuracy following a concert at the Pierre-Charbonneau Center, in which she played for more than a thousand people (she was only 10 years old). As a singer, he praised her quasi scandalous ‘aplomb’ in the repertoire of the great Edith Piaf, while emphasizing the impression of hearing a twenty-year-old woman’.[1]

Between 2010 and 2017, Isabella d’Éloize Perron studied at the Conservatory of Music at Mount Royal University in Alberta with violinist Bill Van der Sloot. She was awarded many prizes and distinctions: First Prize at the International Radio Competition for Young Performers Concertino Praga organized by Czech Radio under the patronage of the EBU (European Union of Radio and Television), which earned her a tour in the Czech Republic; Second Prize at the Klein International String Competition (San Francisco), First Prize at the National Music Festival (Canada), First Prize and Highest Score in all categories at the Canadian Music Competition.

Isabella was heard throughout Quebec on « La Cour des Grands » (CBC) as a violinist and singer in the fall of 2008, and in several concerts in Quebec and the United States. In 2010, she played major part in the show « MusicMan », in more than 80 shows across Quebec.

Recently, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra proclaimed her « Emerging Artist » for the 2017-2018 season.
