Biography 2018: Following a degree in musicology at the Sorbonne and a violin prize at CRR d’Aubervilliers – La Courneuve, Axelle Fanyo decided to concentrate on singing. She entered Glenn Chambers’ class at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris in 2012. In June 2016 she obtained her Master’s degree, graduating with a unanimous distinction.

She has performed in recitals at many festivals, including Jeune Talent at the Petit Palais in Paris, Le printemps des Alizés at Essaouira in Morocco, Gratchenfestival in Amsterdam, Peter de Grot in Groningen and the Chopin Festival in Nohant. On stage, she has sung Elizabeth in Wagner’s Tannhaüser, Madame Cortese in Rossini’s Il viaggio a Reims and recently Vitellia in Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito at the Dijon Opera.

In piano-voice duet, she won First Prize at the International Student LiedDuo Competition in the Netherlands and the Young Talent Prize at the Concours international d’interprétation de la Mélodie française in Toulouse.

Axelle Fanyo is generously sponsored by Denise & Jean Gagnon.
