Recognized for her virtuoso talent, Marie-Andrée Ostiguy has been a part of the Canadian musical landscape for almost twenty years. Having attended the prestigious institutions of the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, the Juilliard School of Music in New York, Indiana University, the Banff School of Fine Arts and the Université de Montréal, Marie-Andrée has also had the opportunity to further her musicianship with the renowned masters André Laplante, Gyorgy Sebok, Shigeo Neriki, Jacinthe Couture and Henri Brassard.
Because of her unique style to interest and entertain the public with passionate performances of classical works and her original compositions, Marie-Andrée has not only charmed Québec and Canada with her music, but also the United States. Following an American tour that brought her to perform at the Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival in Los Angeles (California) in 2003, Marie-Andrée played a sold-out performance at the Cinquième Salle de la Place des Arts.
In the pursuit of her objective to bring a wider public to appreciate classical and instrumental music, Marie-Andrée presents cultural evenings entitled “Concerts-Salon” in her artist studio in Beloeil. She also hosts “Rendez-Vous en Musique” - a monthly television show of interviews and musical performances on channel TVR-S (canal VOX).
Being very involved in her community, Marie-Andrée presided over la Table culturelle de la Vallée du Richelieu, from 1998 to 2000 and from 2002 to 2004. In May 2004, she became the honorary president of the Salon des Arts de Brossard and of the regional organization of the Relay for Life, organised by the Canadian Cancer Society. Marie-Andrée has a rich taste for learning, a great enthusiasm for getting involved in a constructive way, sharing her experience and lending her expertise. She just released her new CD, Rêverie, a collection of sixteen original compositions for piano and string quartet.
