Born in 1986, Elodie Bugni started playing the violin at the age of 4. She developed a passion for chamber music at a very early age. She created her first string quartet at the age of 8 and has worked with the quartets of Debussy, Manfred, Sine Nomine, Parisii, and Gabor Takacs.

At the age of 17, she entered the Haute École de musique de Genève, in the class of Jean-Pierre Wallez. There she obtained her Concert Diploma and her Teaching Master's Degree in June 2006. The same year, she won the Rotary Club's Golden Talent award. She studied with Gyula Stuller at the Haute École de Musique de Fribourg and also brilliantly passed her Master's degree as a soloist.

Between 2002 and 2009, Elodie was regularly called upon to perform as a soloist with various orchestras of the Lake Geneva region, such as the Orchestre de Fribourg, the Sinfonietta de Genève, the Orchestre de l'A.M.A, the Orchestre des Jeunesses Musicales Suisses.

Elodie Bugni has benefited from the invaluable advice of Tibor Varga, Francesco Di Angelis, Patrick Fontanarosa, Miguel Da Silva and Aurélio Pérez.

In 2010, she joined the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse in the first violins, under the direction of Tugan Sokhiev, and the following year, she joined the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in Geneva in the same register, under the baton of Marek Janowski.

At the same time, she played in sonata with the pianist Jean-Christophe Crapiz and founded the Ensemble Chagall, a chamber music ensemble of variable geometry to which several musicians of the OSR belong, including Jean Pierre Berry, Dmitry Rasul-Kareyev and Hubert Geiser.
