Born in Valais, Geoffroy Perruchoud began his musical career by studying the clarinet. After obtaining his MA in Music from the Haute école de musique in Geneva, he completed his training as a clarinetist with a Master of Arts in Music Performance with honours, in Thomas Friedli’s class. It was during his studies in Geneva that he discovered singing, in Michèle Moser’s class, and so it was that he began his professional operatic training at the HEMU in Lausanne, in Frédéric Gindraux’s class, where he went on to obtain his Master of Arts in Music Performance specialising in singing.
His performances as a concert artist are divided between vocal and instrumental roles. He has consequently played in the Orchestre de Chambre de Genève and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and was also a member of the Trio Divertimento.
As a singer, he performs in numerous professional vocal ensembles (Ensemble Cantatio, Gli Angeli Genève, the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne, the Horizon Chimérique, and many more) and as a soloist under numerous conductors, such as John Duxbury, Facundo Agudin, Dominique Tille, Renaud Bouvier, and Romain Mayor.
On stage, his most notable roles have been that of Escamillo in Bizet’s Carmen, Jupiter in Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, the lead role in Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Théâtre du Jorat and with the Opéra du Rhône, not to mention the roles of Walter in Rossini’s William Tell, and Angelotti in Tosca.
He is a musical training instructor at the Conservatoire Populaire in Geneva where he also conducts the Pop'Choeur choir as well as the wind sections of orchestras at schools in the canton.
He has already collaborated twice with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, both as a presenter and a narrator.
