Montréal, May 25, 2022 – Le Concours musical international de Montréal (CMIM) is proud to announce that Maestro Jacques Lacombe will conduct the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) for the semifinal and final rounds of the Aria competition on June 6-7 and 9 at Maison symphonique.

The CMIM is extremely grateful to Maestro Jacques Lacombe who has agreed to step in on short notice to conduct for the Aria competition of Voice 2022. Maestro Lacombe last collaborated with the CMIM for Piano 2004. Maestro Bramwell Tovey, who was slated to conduct for Voice 2022, has been advised by his doctors that the next step in the recovery from his recent illness is a period of medical rehabilitation, leaving him unable to make the trip to Montreal. We wish him a speedy and full recovery.
