Sylvie Leprohon grew up in Quebec, Canada, and graduated from the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal. Scholarships from the Canada Council enabled her to study in Europe; first in Zürich with André Jaunet and then with Aurèle Nicolet in Freiburg, Germany where she completed a post-graduate degree.
Through her participation in Masterclasses, Sylvie has had substantial contact with other major flautists such as William Bennet, James Galway, Maxence Larrieu and Raymond Guiot.
In 1983 after spending some years performing and teaching in Europe, Sylvie came to Australia and has led an active musical life first in Brisbane and since 1984 in Melbourne. She has played flute and piccolo with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, the Queensland Philharmonic Orchestra, the Australian Pops Orchestra and the State Orchestra of Victoria.
Since 1992, Sylvie has developed a career as chamber musician and soloist. She has performed with many ensembles such as Ensemble Variante, Trio Vivace and Ariel Ensemble. Sylvie teaches flute at Monash University, Genazzano FJC College and Kilvington Grammar.
