In June 2010, she graduated from the Lyon National Conservatory of Music and Dance, obtaining her Master’s Degree summa cum laude by a unanimous decision of the jury.
She was also singled out by the jury in the 5th international choral conducting competition organized by Europa Cantat in Ljubljana (Slovenia) in March 2009, winning the Special Jury Prize for the quality of her rehearsal work.
With Métaphores, her women's chorus at the Grenoble Conservatory, she won the second prize in the women’s choir category and the award for best conductor at the Arezzo (Italy) international competition in 2014.
Her interest in a wide variety of repertoires has led her to conduct such diverse works as Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Monteverdi's Vespers, Bruckner’s Mass in E minor, Bartok’s Village Scenes or Ohana’s Cantigas.
Her passion for small ensemble vocal music prompted her to create and direct Epsilon, a professional vocal group with which she has been performing 16th century vocal music for the past 10 years, re-exploring it in an inventive fashion, always ready to go off the beaten path to seek new avenues for interpreting this repertoire. Committed to promoting contemporary music, she has commissioned the young Slovenian composer Nana Forte to write motets that mirror the early double chorus pieces of the Renaissance.
Maud’s keen interest in knowledge transmission and the training of young audiences was rewarded in September 2011 by her appointment as a permanent member of faculty at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Grenoble, teaching vocal ensemble direction and choral conducting, a position which has allowed her to develop many musical projects with children, teenagers and university students, always striving to promote individual fulfillment through group work. She fosters cross-disciplinary endeavors and strives to discover new ways to stage and perform the choral repertoire.
Her interest in working with young singers has prompted regular guest appearances at international events in Italy, Germany, Norway, Estonia, Turkey and Cameroon. A member of the Europa Cantat musical committee from 2012 to 2015, she has been particularly active in devising and developing European projects.
Also a singer by training, she is particularly fond of the 16th and 17th century repertoire for small ensembles in which each part is carried by a single singer, which she has explored with Epsilon. She has also sung with such ensembles as the Rennes opera chorus, Calliope, Arsys Bourgogne or the Britten Chorus under the direction of Régine Théodoresco, Pierre Cao, Nicole Corti, David Stern and Emmanuel Krivine.
