In January 2015, Vincent Boucher was appointed titular organist at Saint-Joseph’s Oratory. He has performed extensively and internationally, notably in England, France and Austria. 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 fifteen recordings, which have won a number of prizes and the praise of critics.
For over 17 years, Vincent Boucher has worked in the financial industry. He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance and a graduate degree in e-commerce from the HEC, Université de Montréal’s business school, a Master of Business Administration from Oxford University and the prestigious Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
