Sophie-Véronique Cauchefer Choplin is considered by her peers as one of the best organ improvisers of her generation.

Born in 1959 in Nogent-le-Rotrou, France, she grew up in a musician family where she was taught piano. After completing piano, organ and harmony courses at the Ecole Nationale de Musique of Le Mans, she entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique of Paris where she studied the organ with Rolande Falcinelli. She was awarded the first prize in organ, improvisation, harmony, fugue and counterpoint. Her academic success was rewarded in 1980 with a prize from the French Ministry of Culture.

Sophie-Véronique Cauchefer Choplin was named titular of the Great Organ of Saint Jean-Baptiste de la Salle in Paris in 1983. In 1985, she added the position of titular assistant of the Great Organ of Saint Sulpice in Paris. In that same year, she became the first woman to win the 2nd prize of Improvisation at the Chartres International Organ Improvisation Competition.

Sophie-Véronique Cauchefer Choplin has an extensive international career, giving recitals and master classes in Europe, United States, Canada and Japan.  She is a regular judge for international organ competitions and is teaching interpretation and improvisation at the Royal College of Music of London. 

Her unique capacity to improvise on texts such as the famous story of “The Little Prince” with internationally acclaimed actors like Michael Lonsdale, Marcel Maréchal, Jean-Michel Dhermay or Brigitte Fossey gathered tremendous appreciation.  Her recording of Bach, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Franck, Rheinberger, Messian, Grunenwald and improvisations have gathered high praise from the public and the press.
