Francis Bodet (Trumpet, Concuctor)

Born: 1894 - France
Died: 1981

The French trumpeter and conductor, Francis Bodet first studied at the Lyon Conservatory, where he received a first prize in 1910 before entering the class of Merry Franquin (1848-1934) at the Paris Conservatory, and where in 1914 he again received a first prize.

In 1926, on the founding of L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande he became principal trumpeter. During the winter of 1928-1929 a group of young singers was formed under Francis Bodet and René Kister (a writer and publisher), in order to present to a Geneva audience the works of J.S. Bach and his contemporaries. They gave their first concert on May 11, 1929 in the temple de Saint-Gervais, accompanied by soloists of L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.
