Juliette Moncada

Juliette’s (she/her) first contact with music as a child was playing the piano. Later, as a teenager, she liked to imitate the singers my mother listened to, such as Natalie Dessay or Barbara Bonney. She then decided to dive deeper into music and study at the Grenoble Conservatory of Music (France). Teaching was important to her, so she completed my training with a state singing teacher’s diploma in Lyon (France). This has been her job for over 10 years.

As a musician, she has sung as a soloist in a variety of styles, including baroque music (Bach, Monteverdi, Dowland…), opera (Purcell, Mozart, Britten…), songs and Lieder (Debussy, Schubert, Rachmaninoff…), and contemporary music (Cage, Berio, Crumb…). She has also performed in several a cappella vocal groups and ensembles, singing jazz standards and traditional music.

2018 was a significant change for her and her partner as they decided to move to Halifax and write a new page in their lives. She changed jobs, but her passion for music just needed to find a way to express itself. She had the privilege of joining the Halifax Camerata Singers that same year, and since then she’s loved singing in this community and sharing so many wonderful musical and human moments.
