Renaud Gratton is a very active trombonist on the Quebec music scene. He graduated from the Montreal Conservatory of Music under the tutelage of Alain Trudel and Patrice Richer. A member of the Orchester symphonique de Drummondville since 2015, as second trombone, he can also be heard as a freelancer with several ensembles and orchestras, such as the Violons du Roy, the Orchester symphonique de Trois-Rivières, the Orchester symphonique de Laval and the Orchester des Grands Ballets.
He is regularly called upon to join many major productions, such as the musical Mary Poppins in 2016, or the play Le Chant de Ste-Carmen de la Main, presented at the TNM in 2013, both recipients of Félix for show of the year.
Multi-instrumentalist, he accompanies several artists, both in the studio and on stage, such as Klô Pelgag, Michel Rivard, the Cowboys Fringants, Philippe Brach and many others. He is a founding member of the Montreal Hornstars brass quintet, which pours as much into classical as jazz, collaborates regularly with the most prominent artists in the province, and is currently working on the production of a first album.
Always looking for new challenges, Renaud is currently working on a song project, in which he puts forward all of his musical background.
