This year we are happy to offer to bass players of every level to join us this summer for a class with Cédric Carlier, professor at the Lyon Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique and solo bassist in the orchestra of the Opéra National de Lyon.

Cédric started his training at the CNR in Reims where he obtained the first prizes for double bass, chamber music and music education. He then went on to study at the CNSM Lyon in the class of J. P. Céléa where he obtained a DNSPM diploma in double bass with a unanimous mention très bien.

Very early he taught at several conservatories, is professeur référent at Cefedem, and was appointed professor at the CNSM Lyon in 2012. He also teaches students of various nationalities in international academies and regularly gives master classes in several conservatories of France and abroad (Europe and Asia).

Having been a member of the Orchestre de Paris from 1999 to 2007, he was appointed solo double bass of the Opéra National de Lyon in 2007. With these orchestras he has played under the baton of renowned conductors, including L. Maazel, V. Gergiev, B. Haitink, P. Boulez, W. Christie and K. Petrenko. He is founder and member of the Pelleas chamber orchestra.

He has been part of numerous chamber music concerts in France and abroad, of tours of Europe, Asia and the Americas, and of recitals with piano or orchestra. Cédric has been playing double bass in several ensembles of contemporary music and, since 2010, has been member of the Lemanic Modern Ensemble where he has performed in a large number of creations.
