Born in Montreal, Canada, Aude St-Pierre began her piano studies at age three and was already giving her first concert as part of the Canadian music week in Montreal a year later. When she was 11 years old, she recorded her first CD, which was produced and broadcast by the national broadcasting corporation Radio-Canada. Two years later, she made her orchestral solo debut and won a prize at her very first international piano competition. 


She concluded her studies in Canada under the guidance of André Laplante and Marc Durand with a Premier Prix and an Artist Diploma. In 2013, she moved to Germany and pursued her studies in the class of the American pianist Nina Tichman at the Cologne University of Music and Dance, where she completed a Bachelor's degree in music education as well as a Master's degree in piano performance. While still studying at the Cologne University of Music, she was awarded with the position of piano lecturer. She was also invited to participate in numerous master classes, where she had the opportunity to work with such renowned artists as Menahem Pressler, Jacques Rouvier, Emanuel Ax, Pascal Devoyon, Claudio Martinez-Mehner, Jerome Rose, Eduard Zilberkant, Arnaldo Cohen, Dominique Weber, Fabio Bidini, Bernd Goetzke, Ilja Scheps and Wojciech Świtała.


Aude St-Pierre was awarded the Deutschlandstipendium scholarship as well as numerous prizes in national and international piano and chamber music competitions. At the Canadian Music Competition, she received a second prize as well as the highest cumulative score in all categories. She also played as a soloist with orchestras such as the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre symphonique du Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, the Musique Avenir ensemble and the Toruń Symphony Orchestra. She has performed throughout Europe and North America and had the chance to play in such venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall, the National Arts Centre of Canada, the Place des Arts in Montreal, Schloss Burg Namedy and the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum, as well as in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Poland and the Netherlands. 


In 2020, Aude St-Pierre turned her focus to the recording of unknown pieces for piano solo and 2 pianos from persecuted composers such as Maria Herz, Adolf Busch, Richard Rosenberg and Karl Weigl through a collaboration with the pianist Anton Gerzenberg and the Lichterfeld foundation. At the moment, she is working on a CD with the complete works for piano solo from Maria Herz in the studios of WDR Funkhaus. Her first recording of Maria Herz's piano sonata was already broadcast on SRF2 (Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen), WDR 3 and Deutschlandfunk.

Aude St-Pierre is Assistant Director of the Meerbusch municipal school of music, where she also teaches piano.
