I Musici de Montréal invites young  musicians, based in Quebec and aged 5 to 25, to challenge themselves, regardless of their instrument.

Our musicians know how much hard work learning a musical instrument entails. The I Musici Challenge is an invitation to surpass yourself by sharing, on the web, an excerpt or an entire musical piece of which you are particularly proud and symbolizes your perseverance and your passion for music.
