The 2011 Canadian Music Competition National Final starts Monday

Montréal, Friday, June 17, 2011 – The Canadian Music Competition’s (CMC) National Final starts this coming Monday, June 20, at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal. A total of 218 young musicians (119 girls and 99 boys) aged 7 to 30 from 7 provinces across Canada will take part in this last stage of the competition. Results will be announced July 5 at 7:00 PM. The gala concert, featuring this year’s winners and accompanied by the Orchestre Métropolitain under the direction of Alain Trudel, will take place at 7:30 PM on July 14 at the Centre Pierre-Charbonneau, as part of the Concerts populaires de Montréal series. The CMC will once again be offering over $100,000 in scholarships and prizes. The general public is cordially invited to come and support the participants.

Since 1958, the CMC has provided a chance to be heard, as well as invaluable stage experience, to many young artists who have since gone on to become – and continue to be – major players on the national and international music scenes. Artists such as Louis Lortie, Marc-André Hamelin, James Ehnes, Isabel Bayrakdarian, Angela Hewitt, Liona Boyd, and Martin Beaver come to mind, among others.
