Benoît Graindorge began his oboe studies at the Dijon CRR in 2000. His interest in the "orchestral" instrument quickly led him to diversify: he followed writing and chamber music classes,
WHERE DO WE COME FROM ?
Our orchestra has not always been oblique!
Its history is long and winding, here it is:
Dijon University Symphony Orchestra
Parfaitement, l'OSUD !
Yes, perfectly, OSUD.
Under the direction of Flavien Boy, then Maxime Pitois, we rehearsed on campus, and our ranks were almost exclusively students.
And we were playing the classical repertoire.
Under the impetus of Maxime, we got down to modern creation, with one idea in mind: to cross and mix the arts.
It gradually became the hallmark of the ensemble: the identity of the orchestra was born, it was now necessary to change the name!
The Zic-Zag Ensemble
Decked out with this brand new name, we set out to conquer the world.
Maxime Pitois (whom we warmly greet) leaves to study in Lausanne, the whole is entrusted to the baton of Alexandre Herviant.
We start a big jazz program, on this occasion we add to the whole a bassist (Florian Raimondi) a drummer (Jérôme Roubeau) and a keyboard ( Thomas Loyer )
The rhythm section was born, since then we can not do without it!
