Born into a French-Italian family, Harmonie Deschamps studied singing and drama from an early age. In 2017, she got her Masters in the Vocal Program at the National Superior Conservatory of Paris with Valérie Guillorit (where she also studied with Malcolm Walker).
With a large repertoire for Young Lyric Soprano - from Opera to Sacred or Contemporary Music, Operetta and Musical Theatre - she has performed in several opera productions (notably, from 2016 to 2018, she played the title role in La serva Padrona by Pergolesi at Reims’s Opera House, "Phénice" in Armide by Gluck directed by Marc Minkowski at the Philarmonie de Paris, "Proserpina" in Orfeo Crossing the Ganges based on Monteverdi's Orfeo at the Arsenal of Metz (2016), "Carolina" in Il Matrimonio Segreto by Cimarosa, with the stage directors Julien Lubek and Cécile Roussat, “Pauline” in Offenbach’s La vie Parisienne at Bordeaux’s Opera House…).
She has sung several masterpieces of Early Music (Bach, Monteverdi, Haendel…) with the Ensemble “Akadêmia” in several renowned French Festivals and with the famous French Ensemble “Les Musiciens du Louvre”.
Harmonie enjoys performing and doing workshops abroad, as in India (Tours “Tales of the Night” and "Songs of the Heart” 2016-17…), in Japan (IMS Festival in Kyoto 2016), Prague (Akademie Versailles with the Collegium Marianum 2019)…
In addition, she has studied Art Song with Anne Le Bozec, Susan Manoff, Karolos Zouganelis... and performs with the pianists Michalis Boliakis (their duet was finalist at the International Competition of Lied and Melodie Nadia and Lili Boulanger 2015), Valeria Suchkova and Adriano Spampanato.
In the coming 2 years, she will perform Mozart’s Mass in C (Soprano 2 solo) with the Ensemble “Melisme(s)” (Nantes and Rennes’s Opera Houses, Besançon…), and collaborate with the Ensemble Les Lunaisiens for several projects including the opera for children "L'oreille à tiroirs”. Her quartet, Confluantsa, that she co-founded has been selected to do the World Premiere of the Opera Padre by Kanako Abe and is creating several musicals, including "Noces" and "les Quatre" (about the Mozart/Da Ponte trilogy). She also created in August 2019 the show “Buried Treasures” (about Western and Indian Music and Literature) with her newborn Ensemble LilaNoor.
