Blake Pouliot


Blake Pouliot

Described as “immaculate, at once refined and impassioned,” (ArtsAtlanta) violinist Blake Pouliot (pool-YACHT) has anchored himself among the ranks of classical phenoms. A tenacious young artist with a passion that enraptures his audience in every performance, Pouliot has established himself as “one of those special talents that comes along once in a lifetime” (Toronto Star).

Pouliot ventures into a spectacular 2022/23 season highlighted by debuts at the symphonies of Arkansas, Bangor, Elgin, North Carolina, Oregon, Tacoma, and Westmoreland. Recent highlights include debuts with the Boise Philharmonic, Omaha Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Plano Symphony, Sarasota Orchestra and Winnipeg Symphony; and being named Artist-in-Residence at Orchestre Métropolitain where he deepened his relationship with the orchestra’s music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin. He also returns to the National Youth Orchestra of Canada to embark on his second year as Artist-in-Residence, following last season’s inaugural residency in which the organization welcomed him to cultivate a curated program for students and faculty.

Pouliot performs on the 1729 Guarneri del Gesù on generous loan from an anonymous donor.
