Vincent Boucher is enjoying a true double career, pursuing both music and finance. He has studied under harpsichordists Dom André Laberge and Luc Beauséjour, as well as organist Bernard Lagacé. While in Mireille Lagacé’s class at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, a jury twice unanimously awarded him a first prize for organ and harpsichord. He has also completed a doctorate in performance at McGill University with John Grew, and furthered his studies in Vienna with Michael Gailit, and later in Paris with Pierre Pincemaille.
Vincent Boucher has performed extensively and internationally, notably at the cathedrals of Chartres, Bourges, and Notre-Dame de Paris. In 2000 he won first prize in the John Robb Organ Competition. In 2002, he won the Académie de musique du Québec’s Prix d’Europe, which had not been given to an organist since 1966. In 2003 he was awarded an Opus Prize in the category Discovery of the Year. He has already made nine recordings, which have won a number of prizes and the praise of critics, and most recently, he has released, on the ATMA Classique label, the first recording of the complete works of Charles Tournemire.
For more than 14 years, Vincent Boucher has worked in the financial industry, and he currently serves as Director of Product development at Standard Life Investments. He holds a bachelor's degree in finance and a graduate degree in e-commerce from the HEC, Université de Montréal’s business school and a Master of Business Administration from Oxford University.
