Emerging Artists Concerts on tour
Since 1949, JMC has supported the career development of the finest young professional instrumentalists and singers. Auditioned across the country and recruited at national and international competitions, our musicians work closely with a stage director to create a personal presentation that showcases their repertoire.
For the 13th year, the Emerging Artists Concerts are presented in over forty cities throughout Quebec, Ontario and Maritimes, reaching about 30,000 music lovers every year.
Thanks to hundreds of volunteers who host our tours, JMC was among the first organizations to present professional calibre concerts in regions far from large urban centres.
These tours have also provided stage experience and an opportunity to be heard for many young artists who have since gone on to make their mark and continue to do so… One need only think of such artists as Joseph Rouleau, Lara St. John, Lyne Fortin, André Laplante, James Campbell, Marc Hervieux, James Ehnes, and Marie-Nicole Lemieux, to name but a few.
