Gregory Charles, appointed Officer of the Order of Canada in 2016, appeared on the Quebec art scene in the late 1980s. The classical pianist prodigy who had represented Canada in international music competitions and then completed his law studies was revealed to the public through the popular drama series Chambres en ville. Gregory has been part of the Quebec and Canadian media landscape for three decades, both on television and radio. He was featured in the famous science series Les débrouillards, at the helm of the television game show Que le meilleur gagne and the late-night talk show Chabada. On radio, he captivated listeners at CKOI, CKAC, CBC Radio One, Radio Two and Première Chaine de Radio-Canada.
At the end of the 90's, Gregory joined his friend Celine Dion on her Let's Talk About Love world tour. Back home, he launched his first one-man show with the Black and White show that he performed 43 times at the Bell Centre in Montreal and was seen by a million spectators. In 2006, Gregory Charles released his first English-language album I Think Of You, which sold half a million copies.
Gregory Charles, conductor for 30 years, founded a major choral festival, Le mondial choral de Laval. This crossroads of choral singing brings together tens of thousands of spectators every year for 10 years. Gregory continues to travel the world with the young singers of his Vocal College, from France to China, Croatia, South Africa, Indonesia and Japan.
In 2009, Gregory Charles presented his show MusicMan in Canada and France. In 2010, he arrived in Scotland and the United Kingdom and became artist in residence at the legendary Café Carlisle on New York's Upper East Side.
In 2010, Gregory Charles and his team produced the choral performances that accompanied the Olympic Torch Tour for the Vancouver Olympic Games. More than 200 performances are organized with thousands of Canadian choristers.
In 2013, Gregory Charles purchases a mobile theatre, Le Qube, and creates the interactive project Vintage. More than 200,000 spectators attend this innovative show, which will then be presented in New York City in the spring of 2015.
Gregory Charles' passion for classical music is confirmed with the acquisition in 2015 of two Radio-Classique stations in Montreal and Quebec City.
That same year, Gregory Charles founded Média Qube Télé and his production team prepared the first season of the program Virtuose, which presents young people with exceptional classical music talent recruited from across Canada. The program triumphs on Ici Radio-Canada Télé and Gregory wins the Prix Gémeaux for best animation in the Youth category. The following year he created and produced another youth series for the CBC, Crescendo, for which he won the Gemini Award for Best Youth Production.
Gregory continues to innovate and launches the Gregory Academy on September 1, 2017, with his very first tutorial, Je suis pianiste. More than two thousand people have enthusiastically signed up for Gregory's virtual piano lessons. In 2018, other tutorials were added, I am a chorister, I am a guitarist and I am a junior pianist. The Gregory Academy now has more than six thousand new musicians.
Gregory Charles continues, through his professional and community work, to share his love of music and knowledge, choral singing, classical music and youth. He continues to create new ways to showcase talent and spread beauty.
