Jean-Christophe
Groffe

Voice (bass)

Roots
I was born in Normandy, lived in Paris and now live in Basel: from the sea to the foothills of the Alps.

Study
First I studied guitar and musicology in Normandy, then in Paris – and finally singing, pedagogy and ensemble music at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.

Professional
I doubt, I ask questions, I search.

Why
I chose polyphony because there is nothing more exciting than working with others in many voices.

Elective Affinities
The Limits to Growth” (in a finite world), dramatically topical, necessary, as tragic as it is hopeful. I find the book incredibly beautiful, poetic and intelligent.
