Lucie Leguay was appointed as assistant conductor to Mikko Franck at the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in 2021. In 2019, she became the assistant conductor of the Ensemble Intercontemporain (Paris), the Orchestre National de Paris, the Orchestre National de Lille and the Orchestre Picardie (Amiens). She is the winner of several international competitions, including the first competition for young conductors at the Philharmonie de Paris (2018), and in 2016, she was awarded the Florence Orchestra Camera Award at the finals of the International Conducting Competition in Empoli (Italy).
In 2019, she was selected as assistant conductor at the Verbier Festival, where she has worked with conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Lahav Shani, Gabor Takacs-Nagy, Manfred Honeck and Fabio Luisi. Since 2018, she has regularly collaborated with Peter Eötvös in masterclasses for contemporary concert repertoire in Budapest.
Lucie Leguay is attracted by a wide repertoire ranging from opera to contemporary and symphonic music. At the core of her interpretation is the faithful rendering of the musical notation, a skill that she has deepened in collaboration with important contemporary composers such as Heinz Holliger, Kaija Saariaho, Francesco Filidei, Philippe Schoeller and Camille Pépin.
She regularly appears in France and abroad with various orchestras and opera houses, such as Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, the Konzerthaus Berlin, Ensemble Intercontemporain, Opéra National de Bordeaux, Orchestre National de Lille, Les Siècles, Ensemble Modern and the Chamber Orchestra of Geneva, to name just a few. In 2014, she founded the Lille Chamber Orchestra, which aims to make music accessible to everyone, and therefore organises performances in locations where classical musicians are not usually expected.
