A versatile artist, Marie-Laurence Primeau leads an active career in early music on both recorder and viola da gamba. She performs with ensembles such as Les Boréades de Montréal, Le Consort des Voix Humaines, La Cigale, Les Idées Heureuses, Les Voix Baroque and the Toronto Masque Theatre. She has appeared in prestigious festivals across Canada, the United States and Mexico, and has participated in various recordings on the label ATMA Classique.
