Born in Ardèche, France, in 1985, Florence Boissolle began learning the piano at the age of 5 in Privas, her hometown. She continued her studies at the National Music School of Valence and later joined, at 14, the Lyon Conservatoire, graduating at the age of 18 with a first prize. She first worked two years with pianist Roger Muraro,, who was a decisive encounter of her pianist life, on a human, musical and technical level. In parallel, she discovered working with singers as well as the opera, lieder and melodies repertoire. In 2007, she entered the Paris Conservatoire in the voice conducting class of Erika Guiomar and Nathalie Dang, and completed her studies with the vocal coaching class of Anne Le Bozec and Emmanuel Olivier.

She also worked in Austria with Helmut Deutsch. She obtained in April 2012 the position of singing director at the Paris Opera and has since been working with many conductors, directors and singers, including Philippe Jordan, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Mark Elder, Robert Carsen, Laurent Pelly, Calixto Bieito, Krzysztof Warlikowski, Maria Agresta, Ramon Vargas, Bo Skovhus, Anita Rachvelishvili, Roberto Alagna, Barbara Hannigan, Jonas Kaufmann…

Alongside her work as a conductor, Florence Boissolle performs as a concert artist, playing with numerous singers, including her favourite duet partner, soprano Marianne Croux. The two artists were invited on numerous occasions in festivals in Belgium (Festival Musiq'3, Été Mosan, Festival d'Aulne, Juillet musical de Saint-Hubert...). Florence Boissolle has also been assistant to Chantal Mathias at the Paris Conservatoire since 2018.
