Founding member of the Trio Hélios, with cellist Raphaël Jouan and pianist Alexis Gournel, french violinist Camille Fonteneau passionately devotes her life to Chamber Music. She regularly plays with ensembles such as l'Ensemble Calliopée (Karine Lethiec), the Rotterdam Chamber Music Society (Julien Hervé), Les Dissonances (David Grimal), and Les Forces Majeures (Raphaël Merlin).

After beginning the violin with Isabelle Faussurier in Lyon, she studied with Larissa Kolos at the CRR de Paris, where she graduated with highest honors. She pursued her studies at the CNSMD of Paris with Alexis Galpérine, where she received her Master's degree. She benefited from masterclasses with musicians such as Jan Repko, Axel Strauss, Sergei Kravtchenko, the members of the Wanderer trio, as well as the Modigliani, Talich and Ébène quartets.

Performing since her youngest age, Camille has received awards during the Bellan, Marie Cantagrill, and Jeunes Solistes de la Sorbonne Competitions in France, which have given her the chance to perform solo with orchestra, in France and in Bulgaria. Her concerts have led her to travel in such countries as India, Israël, Greece, or the USA, and more recently - thanks to the Institut Français - in Marocco. She has also gained in orchestral experience during projects with the Orchestre Français des Jeunes, LGT Young Soloists, the Laureates Orchestra of the CNSMD of Paris, Evian Chamber Orchestra, Les Dissonances, and the Orchestre de Paris.
