This summer, the Canadian Music Competition celebrates its 60th birthday. Join them and discover talented young musicians from all over the world! The young Canadian violinist Kerson Leong joins the Orchestre Métropolitain under the baton of Nicolas Ellis for the culminating gala concert.
Meet the next generation of classical music virtuosos on July 9th at Montréal’s Maison symphonique! For sixty years, this unique gala concert concert-gala introduces young musicians to an international audience. 2018-2019 Revelation Radio-Canada for classical music Nicolas Ellis leads the orchestra, and Kerson Leong, winner of the 2014 CMC’s Tremplin Prize, takes on the role of ambassador for the aspiring young virtuosos. The program features Barber’s Violin Concerto and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, a work the composer and fervent Goethe-admirer wrote as stage music to accompany the German author’s play.
