Daniel Clarke Bouchard is making waves in Montreal as a classical pianist. The 13-year-old loves to read, play hockey (he's a goalie), watch movies and TV talk shows. Some say his musical talents make him a prodigy — he doesn't like the term — but however you define his skills they're getting him attention in the Montreal classical music scene and beyond. He's already performed with L’Orchestre Métropolitain, the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir and with conductors including Daniel Myssyk and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. He even scored a chance to play at Carnegie Hall after placing first in the 2012 Bradshaw and Buono International Competition. He's been developing his talents with friend and mentor Canadian jazz great Oliver Jones since the age of seven, and the two play together on Clarke Bouchard's debut album Scènes d'Enfants. He takes to the red chair to talk about the career he's been working at since he was six.
