Welcome


 

Welcome to françoishoule.ca, where you can find out more about one of Canada’s finest musicians, clarinetist François Houle.

François’ performances and recordings transcend the stylistic borders associated with his instrument in all of the diverse musical spheres he embraces: classical, jazz, new music, improvised music, and world music.

As an improviser, he has developed a unique language, virtuosic and rich with sonic embellishment and technical extensions.

As a soloist and chamber musician, he has actively expanded the clarinet’s repertoire by commissioning some of today’s leading Canadian and international composers and premiering over one hundred new works.

François Houle plays Backun  clarinets, bells, barrels, and mouthpieces exclusively.

Redshift Society will be releasing one, which will feature works by Canadian composers, including several new works written specially for S&S.

Stay tuned for updates on this exciting project!
