Jesse Plessis, piano

Jesse Plessis is a Canadian pianist and composer of Métis heritage who was born in Sparwood, British Columbia. He studied piano with Deanna Oye and composition with Arlan Schultz at the University of Lethbridge, and later piano with Megumi Masaki and composition with Patrick Carrabré at Brandon University.

After attending masterclasses with Norma Fischer in London (England) and Edith Fischer in Blonay (Switzerland), he completed a doctorate in piano performance at the Université de Montréal in the class of Paul Stewart.

He currently attends the Schulich School of Music at McGill University, where he is pursuing a doctorate in composition in the classes of Denys Bouliane and Philippe Leroux.

As a pianist, he has appeared in solo recitals, chamber music, and concerto performances across Canada and Europe. European classical music of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries occupies a central place in his repertoire, as does the western art music of the current era.

His compositions have been broadcast on CBC Radio, and have been performed by the Land’s End Chamber Ensemble, Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra, Musaeus String Quartet, Global Drums Percussion Ensemble, University of Lethbridge Singers, Canadian soprano Lisa Mulgrew, and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
