A State graduate, Anne DEREX teaches viola at the Conservatories of Montreuil and Bagnolet (93) and regularly plays in several orchestras, both classical and pop / rock. She is also a Doctor of Performing Arts. It is his double passion for music and theater that naturally leads him to create bridges between these two disciplines, both from an educational point of view (raising students' awareness of the musician's stage presence) and artistically (shows musicals, staging of operas ...). She studied viola with Nathalie Poulet, Michel Michalakakos or Alain Tresalet and chamber music with Pascal Proust.
A lawyer at the Paris Bar, Solène Debarre escapes her professional practice by drawing or painting in a self-taught way, giving free rein to her imagination. Her taste for art in all its forms developed very young in contact with the classical dance practiced for many years, then cultivated by concerts, opera, ballets, exhibitions.
