Montreal, December 5, 2022 — Jeunesses Musicales Canada (JM Canada) will reunite pianist Philip Chiu and cellist Cameron Crozman in a new trio including the talented violinist Chloé Chabanole for a tour of Quebec and The Maritimes.
With a shared artistic vision, the artists offer a daring program that demands virtuosity, nuance, and poise with pieces by Joseph Haydn, Johannes Brahms and Jennifer Higdon, among others.
“It is with great pleasure that two great friends of JM Canada, Philip and Cameron, have agreed to perform with Chloe on an Emerging Artists Tour. We are sure that this concert will excite all music lovers. They are three accomplished artists who offer masterpieces of the repertoire that will delight audiences,” said Danièle LeBlanc, Executive and Artistic Director of JM Canada.
The Virtuosic Sensibilities concert will be presented during the 2022-2023 Jeunesses Musicales Canada Emerging Artists Concert’s season. This new concert will replace the announced concert “The Titled Quartets” with the Rolston Quartet, which unfortunately had to withdraw.
