Born in Brazil, Henrique Coe is currently doing a doctoral degree in composition at the University of Toronto. In 2017, Henrique composed three pieces for the Dedication of the Montréal Cathedral in Canada, and his piece “Maris Stella” was premiered by the Orquestra Filarmônica de Minas Gerais at the finale of the composition competition “Festival Tinta Fresca” in Brazil. Also in 2017, his piece “Defend us in Battle” was premiered in Canada by the Windsor Symphony Youth Orchestra.

Henrique previously studied at Université de Montréal (Canada) and at Conservatório Brasileiro de Música (Brazil). He was composer-in-residence for the University of Toronto Chamber Orchestra in 2016; for the Women’s Chamber Choir of the University of Toronto in 2015/16; and for Ensemble Kô and Choeur de Jeunes de l’École des Jeunes de l’Université de Montréal in 2013/14. Henrique holds the position of Teaching Assistant at the University of Toronto.

As a performer, Henrique played saxophone in the Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira Jovem and flute with the Coral Arquidiocesano de Niterói (Brazil). He developed his music skills at the symphonic band of the Salesian school in Niterói, in which he played for several years. Henrique was also the first conductor of the youth choir Pequenos Cantores de São Judas Tadeu in Niterói.
