Emmanuel Duperrey was born in France in 1972. He entered the organ class of Marie-Louise Langlais at the Conservatoire National de Région de Paris in 1990 and went on to study at the Conservatoire de Valenciennes, and the Conservatoire National de Région de Saint-Maur. He has received several prestigious awards, including first prize at the UFAM international organ competition. Concurrently with his post as Organist at Notre Dame de l’Espérance in Villemonble, Mr. Duperrey performs recitals in France, Germany, England, and the United States.
