Artiste pluridisciplinaire, Margot Varret commence sa formation par la musique classique, pricipalement le chant et la harpe.
Après avoir obtenu un diplôme de concertiste à l'Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris Alfred Cortot, elle se lance dans une carrière de harpiste soliste, chambriste et de tuttiste.

Suite à deux rencontres significatives, celle de Mônica Passos puis celle d'Archie Shepp, Margot se laisse guider vers le jazz; élève ayant reçu la bourse Internationnale du Berklee College of Music, Margot créé alors le So french cabaret, l'un des premiers quartet de jazz avec harpe et voix lead. Le répertoire rassemble des originaux et des arrangements de standards.

Margot Varret mène parallèlement une carrière de comédienne, étant une ancienne élève de Jean Perimony, et de coachs américains dont Jack Waltzer.


Multidisciplinary artist Margot Varret starts her musical education with a classical training, with principal instruments: voice and harp.

When she received her diploma as a concert artist from the prestigious Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris Alfred Cortot, she started her solo, chamber music and orchestra career as a harpist.

After two significant encounters, those of Brazilian singer Mônica Passos and legendary American saxophonist Archie Shepp, Margot starts her journey in the jazz world. Having received the International Scholarship at Berklee College of Music, Margot creates then the So French Cabaret, one of the very first jazz quartets that features a harpist and vocalist as the band leader. The quartet's repertoire is both a selection of her arrangements of standards and some of her originals.

Margot Varret is also simultaneously leading an acting career for theater, having been a student of Jean Perimony and that of a few American coaches such as Jack Waltzer.
