Isabelle Harvey has been studying cello since the age of eight. She studied at the Conservatoire de musique de Québec where she obtained a graduate diploma with cellist Pierre Morin.
In 1996, she was selected to participate in a tour in Québec with l'Orchestre Réseau du Conservatoire de musique du Québec, as well as a tour in France with the orchestra of the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal in 1997. She also participated in several master classes with Daniel Domb, Shauna Rolston and Roland Pidoux.
In September 2000, Isabelle obtained a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec as part of its grant program for professional artists. Her interest in modern music made her participate in several current music events in Québec.
After obtaining a master's degree in performance at l'Université Laval under the supervision of Huguette Morin in 2000, she undertook a tour of Québec with pianist Dao Trong Tuyen. This duo, formed in 1998 at l'Université Laval, sees the cellist perform in concerts in Vietnam in August 2001.
She finally continues her studies with Huguette Morin to obtain a second master's degree in performance (orchestra and chamber music) in 2004. The following year Mrs. Harvey began studying the Suzuki method with Catherine Walker. In addition to her teaching in the Saguenay region and Québec City as a Suzuki professor, she pursues her career as an performer in chamber music ensembles, including l'Ensemble Talisman, with the symphony orchestra as well as in several creation projects.
