Renaud Boucher-Browning

Rice University
Renaud Boucher-Browning began studying the double bass at age 10 with Jack Koncel, then principal bass of the Boise Philharmonic. In May 2014, Mr. Boucher-Browning completed a Bachelor of Music in Double Bass Performance as a student of Paul Ellison at Rice University, where he is now pursuing a master’s degree in performance. In the four summers between his undergraduate studies, Mr. Boucher-Browning participated in the double bass course at the Domaine Forget Academy in Québec, which shaped his ergonomic technique and his experiential approach to learning music.
In summer 2013, Mr. Boucher-Browning studied solo repertoire and technique with bass soloist and pedagogue François Rabbath in Paris on a Wagoner Scholarship from Rice University. With a second Wagoner Scholarship in summer 2014, Mr. Boucher-Browning studied bass performance and pedagogy in with Caroline Emery, professor at the Royal College of Music and Yehudi Menuhin School in London. He then studied with François Rabbath for nine months on a Woolley Scholarship from the United States Foundation in Paris, where he performed twice in the Orchestra of the Cité Internationale. He also took part in three projects on period instruments in the Youth Orchestra of the Abbey in Saintes, France.
As a Brown Fellowship recipient, Mr. Boucher-Browning teaches weekly eurhythmics classes in the Young Children’s Division of the Michael P. Hammond Preparatory Program of the Shepherd School of Music. He also participated in the Da Camera Young Artist Program during the 2015-2016 season, performing chamber music outreach concerts at the Rothko Chapel, Menil Collection, and Museum of Fine Arts Houston. In July and August 2016, he performed five projects in the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra in northern Germany.
Mr. Boucher-Browning coaches bass sectionals for the Houston Youth Symphony, where he also teaches bass lessons for Melody Scholarship recipients. He serves as sectional coach and technique consultant for the bass section at Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
Mr. Boucher-Browning shares his love of languages with his trilingual parents and his love of music with his younger sister, an aspiring violist and pianist. He enjoys swimming laps and practicing yoga, Tai Chi, and Pilates to maintain his fitness as a musical athlete.
