About Donatienne Michel-Dansac
A musical prodigy, Donatienne Michel-Dansac began at the age of seven her musical studies in violin and piano at the Conservatoire national de région in Nantes (Brittany, France). By age 11, she was a member of the children’s chorus of the Opéra de Nantes and, at 14, she received her degree in music theory.
A voice graduate of the Conservatoire de Paris, Mrs. Michel-Dansac has — through her close collaboration with IRCAM — premièred numerous works by such composers as Philippe Manoury, Pascal Dusapin, Luca Francesconi, Georges Aperghis, Fausto Romitelli and Philippe Leroux. She is also intensely involved with the baroque répertoire and she appeared in director Philippe Béziat’s film _Musica da camera. _
