Viateur Roy

Viateur Roy was born in 1992 in Trois Rivières, Quebec. He currently studies with Patrick Robin and has been his assistant since 2009 upon his graduation from the "Ecole Nationale de Lutherie de Mirecourt" in France. Holding a diploma from the Quebec National School of Furniture Making, he has had much experience in woodworking: staircases, joinery, and furniture-making, after his early experience at the family sawmill.
His musical interests have included singing with the "Petits Chanteurs de Trois Rivières" in Quebec and studying the cello. These rich and varied experiences eventually brought him to the art of musical instrument making, thus “joining” his two passions of music and woodworking.
