Johan dupont is a pianist excelling both in classical music and swing. His left hand is considered as one of the best in Belgium.
Aside from his concerts and tours with different groups, Johan Dupont is very much in demand in solo performances: no genre stops him, from a jazz arrangement of the sonata of Frederic Chopin to the wacky version of The Ride of the Valkyries of Richard Wagner, without forgetting the vast repertoire of French songs, from Charles Trenet to Claude Nougaro.
Awardee of "Concerts Permanents Dexia", Johan Dupont also obtained his diploma at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Liege, where he is currently a member of the faculty.
