Patrick Roux won the Canadian National Guitar Competition in 1989, solidifying his reputation as one of Canada's finest guitarists. In 1992 he won second place at the prestigious Concours International de Duo de Guitare Classique de Montélimar, France with partner Robert Latreille. This outstanding duo then recorded their first CD in 1993. Roux is also an accomplished composer and his works are published by Productions d'Oz.
He has created a repertoire for the group Contretemps/Go, with whom he released a début compact disc in 1996 and now composes and arranges for the Canadian Guitar Quartet. Roux is often heard on CBC radio, on both the French and English networks and has performed with orchestra and played for the Queen of Jordan, the Princess of Holland, the Prime Minister and the Governor General of Canada. He teaches music at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Gatineau and at the University of Ottawa.
