Montreal, June 9, 2022 – I Musici de Montreal is proud to present its 2nd edition of the I Musici Challenge, on Sunday, June 19, at 2 p.m., at the Pierre-Mercure Hall of the Pierre-Péladeau Center, in Montreal. Fifteen young musicians coming from several regions in Quebec will have the opportunity to play their instruments during the concert.

For the past few months, I Musici de Montreal has been inviting young Quebec musicians aged 5 to 25 to go above and beyond individually, regardless of their instrument, by recording a short presentation video and a musical piece (or an excerpt) they are particularly proud of, and which symbolizes their perseverance as well as their passion for music. Out of all the applications, fifteen musicians were selected to participate in the June 19 program.
