Biography

Jocelyn Lafond was born in Saint-Hyacinthe in 1989. His musical journey, beginning with  piano lessons at the age of six, has progressed in the constant pursuit of ways to  understand and express music in its many forms. A graduate of the Trois-Rivières  Conservatory of Music, Montreal Conservatory of Music and Arts au Carré (Mons Royal  Conservatory of Music) in Belgium, he is the holder of a diploma in organ, piano,  collaborative piano, choral and orchestral conducting, and classical music writing styles.  Also active as a concert artist, arranger, and composer, particularly in the domain of  religious music, he has been titular organist at the Saint-Hyacinthe Cathedral since 2009,  in addition to being the chapel master of the Cathedral and Professor at the Trois Rivières Conservatory of Music (Choir, Music Theory and Collaborative Piano) since  2017. Jocelyn Lafond is presently studying organ with Jonathan Oldengarm (and  formerly with Christian Lane and Hans-Ola Ericsson) at McGill University in the D. Mus.  Performance program. He has also singled himself out in many competitions such as the  Canada Music Competition, the Lynnwood-Farnam Competition, and the Quebec Organ  Competition, in which he won first prizes. He is also recipient of the 2019 Sir Ernest  MacMillan Foundation Prize.
