Valérie Milot - Canadian Harpist

Valérie Milot is a musician with the soul of a rebel. Full of initiative and a hard worker, she places the harp centre-stage in unexpected ways and devotes herself with equal passion to her various roles as concertist, producer, professor and mother.

Whether through the pure tradition of classical music or through her innovative productions such as Orbis, a performance blending music and digital art, Valérie seeks to make music accessible. 

Her recordings are a tangible example of her range: they extend from concertos by Mozart and Haendel with Les Violons du Roy under the baton of Bernard Labadie to a transcription of Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint for electric guitar. Solo is her ninth opus and the first to be released under her own label, Anémone 13.

Recognized by her peers and the public, Valérie has been awarded numerous prizes. In 2008, she won the Prix avec Grande Distinction upon graduating from the Conservatoire, where she studied under Caroline Lizotte, and followed this up with the prestigious Prix d’Europe. She is in fact the first harpist in almost 100 years to have won this bursary, which enabled her to study in New York under Rita Costanzi. She went on to win many other prizes: Radio-Canada’s Revelation of the Year, a performance prize at the International Harp Competition of the Cité des Arts de Paris, the Young Soloist Prize of the Radios Francophones Publiquesthe Opus Award for Discovery of the Year, the Louis-Philippe-Poisson Performing Arts Award of the City of Trois-Rivières, the Prix Trois-Rivières sans frontière for her standing both nationally and internationally, the Création arts de la scène award (for Orbis) at the Arts Excellence de Culture Mauricie gala as well as several Adisq Gala and Opus Award nominations.
