Lorène Charmetant was raised in a small village near Lyon in France, and as a child, she gravitated to the various albums of her father’s extensive record collection, leading to jazz piano lessons and singing with various voice ensembles. As a young adult, she entered the Conservatoire de Lyon to take vocal jazz class. Lorène extended her music studies by moving to Québec to attend the Université de Sherbooke where she studied vocal improvisation. After two years in Québec, she travelled to the Yukon for a vacation, and never left. A story that is familiar to many Yukoners. Although jazz has been her primary focus, Lorène has an interest in a wide variety of musical genres. Since she arrived in Yukon in December 2017 Lorène has grown into the musical community of Whitehorse, collaborating with local talents such as Malorie Gendreau, Lonnie Powell, Daniel Janke, Brigitte Jardin and more, as a singer, composer, bass or piano player. In her home studio of Riverdale, she has at heart to transmit her passion and teaches voice, choir and piano.
Here in Dawson, she will be presenting her jazz project, a mix of originals and repertoire songs by famous jazz singers that speak through her heart. The magic will be shared and sustained by gifted musicians Dave Haddock (bass), Daniel Janke (piano), Lonnie Powell (drums) and Olivier Clements (trumpet)

Youth Art Enrichment

Youth Art Enrichment is an annual four-day art program for Yukon youth hosted by the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture in Dawson City. Artistically-inclined youth ages 14 – 18 travel from across the Yukon to take part in intensive workshops led by professional artists. Students choose one of three mediums to study for the duration of the program, learning new skills, techniques, and ways to creatively make artwork for the world to see. The mediums change every year: we have offered printmaking, animation, painting, carving, stained glass, illustration, improv, and much more over the last two decades.
