Thanks Gabriel !!
Gabriel CAPET begun music in the "municipal wind orchestra of Bully-MAZINGARBE" conducted by Raymond BOUDRY. After classical studies (Conservatoire de Lille, OFJ, Académie d'Orchestre de PARIS, CSNMD de Paris), his infatuation for eclecticism led him to interact across different musical universes. His interest for small brass ensembles made him play with ensembles such as: QUINTE JUSTE brass quintet (winner of the Menuhin Foundation in 1986) and the TUBA quartet "Tuba Yaga".
TUBA player of the military orchestra "MUSIQUE DES GARDIENS DE LA PAIX DE PARIS" from 1986 until 1994, he often played with famous french symphonic orchestras: Opéra de Paris, Opéra de Lyon, Orchestre National de Lille, de Bordeaux Aquitaine and big bands: Bekummernis (conductor Luc LE MASNES ) Multicolour Feeling Fanfare Eddy LOUISS and with the big band of the Conservatory of Lille (conductor Denis BADAULT Laurent CUNY ) .
Today, he is member of «l'Ensemble Patchwork»: a swing-wing group who’s aiming to promote the Tuba through different styles of music and formations. On several occasions, Gabriel CAPET plays with brass ensembles such as: brass ensemble of the CNR de Lille, "SUR MESURE"-brass ensemble, the brass ensemble of Orchestre National de Lille and the "EUROBRASS ENSEMBLE" and « Aeolus brass-Band ». He also performs as a soloist with wind-bands such Calonne Ricouart, Villars Bonnot, with brass Bands: Brass-Band from 43° RI, Brass-Band Nord-Pas-de-Calais, OCA Brass-Band, Brass-Band Aeolus.
Willing to share his passion and experience, Gabriel teaches at the "Conservatoire Royal de Liege, CRR de Lille and in the music school of Calonne Ricouart (in twenty five years, he taught at 250 different students 30 became professional musicians or teachers).
He also participated at international summer schools like EPSIVAL or the international academy of Dinant. He organised different events such as "Rencontres inter-régionnales de tuba" , with his friend Thierry THIBAULT or “Discovering the TUBA” with Marc Steckar and P.Legris, “TUBA meets cello” with the Danel quartet, TUBA meets Improvisation” with Didier Havet and J. Deregnaucourt, “TUBA meets French horn” with T.Lentz.
