Since 2018, he has played a major role as pianist and arranger for Duke Box, a swing band that performs for Lindy Hop and Blues dancers in Luxembourg and nearby. In 2022, he started the Geoffrey Sabba Quartet to dive deeper into modern jazz.

Having won a 1st Prize in classical percussion last year, he now aims to achieve similar success in drums this year. Olivier’s broad education spans music theory, jazz theory, chamber music, orchestra participation, jazz vibraphone, sight-reading, and jazz drumming, alongside notable achievements in classical music as both a soloist and orchestra member. This blend of experiences has crafted Olivier’s unique musical identity, skillfully integrating the worlds of jazz and classical music at an early age.
