About Yves Frulla

An accomplished musical artist, who has played keyboards with many of the top pop performers in the industry, Yves Frulla has been a much-sought-after accompanist for over two decades. Yves Frulla was born in Quebec, Canada, but moved to Las Vegas in 2002 to commence work as a keyboard player in Celine Dion’s band during her five-year stint at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Frulla continues to be an active musician at CDA Productions in Las Vegas and collaborates with Celine Dion in the studio and on the stage. Frulla has been associated with Dion since 1990, when he first toured with her. Yves Frulla, whose father played the saxophone, has been interested in music since the age of eight, when he studied classical piano at the École de musique Vincent-d’Indy, a private music school in Montreal. As an undergraduate student, he studied pharmacy at Montreal University, eventually earning a degree in that field in 1985. Despite his success as a studio performer, pianist, and synthesizer programmer, Frulla still views himself as a pharmacist. He enjoys pharmacy and maintains his license, sometimes practicing as a freelance pharmacist in his native Quebec. In addition to his extensive live work with Celine Dion, he has also taken part in many of her studio albums, including Essential Celine Dion, Falling Into You, and Au Cœur du Stade. Yves Frulla has recorded with many other award-winning Canadian musicians. Among these artists are Corey Heart , Sass Jordan, and Claude Dubois . Frulla was nominated for a Prix Gemeaux for his musical contributions to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s coverage of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah.
