About the Preformer
Andrée-Anne Doane (Canada) was born into a family of professional musicians. She received a Bachelor’s degree in voice from University of Quebec in Montreal.
Organist in several Montreal churches, her interest in liturgical music brought her to Saint-Joseph’s Oratory where she was cantor for several years. There she began her lessons on the carillon, first with Claude Aubin (Montreal) and then with Dr. Andrea McCrady (Peace Tower, Parliament of Ottawa). Since 2008 she holds the post of Carillonist at the Oratory. Besides playing 2 concerts per day, 5 days a week, Mrs. Doane is responsible for promoting the carillon through scheduled tours and workshops. Her summer carillon festival features artists from around the world.
In 2010, she recorded solos and duets with Claude Aubin on the Carillon of St-Joseph’s Oratory, a CD entitled “Chantent les Cloches”. In June 2013, she became a Carillonneur member of the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America after playing a successful exam recital at St. Paul, Minnesota. In June 2014, she was awarded by the GCNA “The Ronald Barnes Scholarship”. She gave several recitals in North America, including Denver (Colorado), Chicago and Springfield (Illinois), Ames (Iowa), Gainesville (Florida), Ottawa and Toronto (Canada).
