After starting his career playing the double bass (1er prix at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Paris), Fabrice Parmentier devoted himself exclusively to choir and orchestra conducting. He graduated his diplôme d'études musicales for orchestra conducting at the Conservatoire à rayonnement Régional de Dijon in the Class of Jean-Sébastien Béreau in 2000 and funded the choir and orchestra of the University of Nanterre.

At the head of permanent ensembles of contemporary music (2E2M, Ars Nova, TM+), he directed first performances of many pieces by today's composers (T.Pécou, A.Markéas, P.Hersant, B.Cavanna, M.Reverdy, N.Bacri...). His taste for lyrical repertoire and musical theatre led him to conduct great XIXth century operas (La Traviata, Carmen, La Belle Hélène) as well as baroque operas and oratorios (Didon et Enée, King Arthur, Samson, Jephté..)

Assistant director in 2006 of Isaac Karabtchevsky, Jean-Claude Casadesus, Ion Marin and Daniel Kawka, Fabrice Parmentier has been invited since 2007 to conduct national orchestras and various symphonic ensembles such as the Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire, the Orchestre National de Lille, the Orchestre Régional de Bayonne Côtes Basques, the Orchestre de Douai Région Nord-Pas de Calais and theOrchestre Lyrique de Région Avignon Provence.

Quite invested in teaching, Fabrice Parmentier is in charge of the departments of group playing of the Créteil and Nanterre conservatoires.
