S lowly but inexorably, humanity continues its long march towards the future by making us succeed each other. Similarly, Art in all its forms (and music in particular) allows us to transmit the culture of the past, through its present manifestations, into the future. This is why young musicians are crucial in this sequence, they are the key to this handover and we must cherish them! The I Musici Challenge Concert therefore introduces you to several of these amazing talents who will form the next generation of musicians. Four of these young virtuosos will play solo with the orchestra, and seven high-quality players will join the ranks of the ensemble to perform one of the most performed works in the history of I Musici de Montréal : Tchaikovsky’s Serenade.
