He has been in charge of many symphonic concerts starring Mika, Cœur de Pirate, Bruno Pelletier, Is belle Boulay, Starmania, Notre-Dame de Paris, Simple Plan, Rufus Wainright, Marie-Mai, to name a few.

He traveled to Los Angeles where, for a little over six years, where he conducted the Paramount Pictures Orchestra for television series and major Hollywood motion pictures.
