Cellos - Academy
Caroline Dauchy, cello

Caroline Dauchy was born in 1999 and began playing the cello when she was three. During her studies with Marc-Didier Thirault in Reims, she won several prizes at competitions: the third and first prize at the competition VioloncellenSeine and the third prize at the Vatelot-Rampal Competition. She also won the Maurice Ravel Prize at the Academy of Saint-Jean-de-Luz and played as part of the series «Les Ravéliades». Since she was keen to make her education as comprehensive as possible, Caroline Dauchy sought inspiration from Yvan Chiffoleau, Philippe Muller, Henri Demarquette and Gary Hoffman before joining the class of Raphaël Pidoux at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris. Membership in the Orchestre Français des Jeunes inspired her wish to play professionally in an orchestra. In parallel to her studies, she founded the Quatuor Vigrid with friends she had met at the conservatory in Paris, and the ensemble was invited to perform at the museum of the Cité de la Musique in Paris as part of the programming of the Philharmonie de Paris. As she wished to familiarize herself with music education in Germany, she successfully applied to study with Tristan Cornut at the Stuttgart Academy of Music and Performing Arts. Caroline Dauchy has frequently been acclaimed for her rich sound and precise playing. She graduated with honours from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris and also holds a teaching diploma. She has performed as part of renowned ensembles such as the orchestra of the Opéra National de Paris, Ensemble intercontemporain, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra and Ars Nova. Starting in September 2023, Caroline Dauchy is a member of the Luxembourg Philharmonic Academy.
