Grégoire Mourichoux – Tenor

Grégoire MourichouxEclectic and enthusiastic, the French tenor Grégoire Mourichoux always challenges himself to incorporate drama and body expression in his singing performances.  Born in 1990, Grégoire studied at the Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP) with the French baritone Alain Buet where he got his Bachelor degree diploma in 2014.  Prior to his time in Paris, he trained as a singer and dancer at the Lyon Conservatoire.

Showing an immense passion for opera; Grégoire often sings in France as a soloist and chorister in famous venues such as the Chatelet Theatre, Champs Elysees Theatre or the Pleyel Theatre.  In the latter he sang the Pearl Fishers by Bizet with the Tenor Roberto Alagna and the Soprano Nino Machaidze.  Recently Grégoire performed in the opera Alice in Wonderland by Unsuk Chin at the Barbican, London.

Grégoire Mourichoux used to sing with the Solistes de Lyon Bernard Tetu and performed oratorio works such as Verdi’s Requiem, L’Enface du Christ and Te deum by Berlioz and worked with famous orchestras and directors like Serge Baudo, François-Xavier Roth, Jean-Claude Malgoire and Jun Märkl.  He sang tenor solo in Mozart’s Requiem during a tour in Brittany with the famous French soprano Patricia Petibon as a mentor.

Being very interested in musical theatre, Grégoire sang the role of L’oncle Ian in the world premiere of the Chatelet Theatre’s production Pourquoi j’ai mange mon Pere written after Roy Lewis’ novel.  He also sang some of Stephen Sondheim’s famous musicals in this same venue.
