Montreal, February 25, 2022 – Following a very successful first edition of the I Musici Challenge, the I Musici de Montreal Chamber Orchestra is once again inviting young musicians based in Quebec and aged 5 to 25, to challenge themselves, regardless of their instrument! This event is an invitation to surpass oneself, to showcase perseverance and to share a passion for classical music. The deadline to participate is May 1, 2022.
All young musicians aged 5 to 25 who practice a classical musical instrument are eligible. It is possible to participate as a soloist (with or without accompaniment). String ensembles of up to four people are also accepted. To participate, simply record a short introduction video and a musical piece (or excerpt) for up to eight minutes.
Participants will have the chance to join the Friends of I Musici, a select group that receives exclusive promotions throughout the season. Those named Favourites will receive special tickets for the next season and some will be invited to play in the context of an I Musici concert.

In 2021, twenty apprentice musicians were awarded the Favourites mention in four categories: Piccoli, Primary, Secondary and Cégep. At a concert presented at the end of the last season, the four soloists chosen at the Cégep level had the chance to perform works by Telemann, Bach, Haydn, Piazzola and Rimski-Korsakov while the five winning soloists of the High School level were added to the orchestra to close the concert with Tchaikovsky’s Serenade.
