Dom André Laberge

, organ

Dom André Laberge is organist at the Benedictine Abbey of Saint-Benoît-du-Lac (Quebec, Canada). He first studied at the Quebec Music Conservatoire in Montreal where he had Bernard Lagacé (organ), Kenneth Gilbert (harpsichord), Gilles Tremblay (musical analysis), and Françoise Aubut (harmony and counterpoint) as teachers.

At the end of his studies in 1972, he won a First Prize in organ, a First Prize in harpsichord, and a First Prize in analysis. With grants from the Canada Council for the Arts in 1978 and 1979, Dom Laberge went to Europe to further develop his technique and musicianship. He worked on the organ with Xavier Darasse in Toulouse and the harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam. Since his return to Canada in 1979, Dom Laberge has divid-ed his time - besides his monastic duties and his tasks as the Abbey Prior, Novice Master, and Organist - between private teaching and recording.
