Gregoire Ichou, with his passion for history, music, literature and visual arts, has developed a unique approach to concertizing that combines performance with a lively presentation of art and historical events relevant to the music. By giving this context and telling the story surrounding the music, Mr. Ichou provides a new appreciation and perspective to the music.
Mr. Ichou has collaborated with Laurence Equilbey and Geoffroy Jourdain at the Cité de la Musique and Cathédrale Saint-Louis des Invalides, among others. In 2010, He interpreted the role of Pierrot in the opera Le Tableau Parlant by Grétry at the Abbaye-aux-dames de Saintes in Le Géant opera by Prokofiev at the Musée d’Orsay concert hall.

The following year he was a laureate of the Concours d’Honneur of the Union Professionnelle des Maîtres du Chant Français and was the youngest male finalist at the national opera singing competition in Béziers (France).
