2021-2022 Emerging Artists Concerts
Jeunesses Musicales Canada (JMC) has a touring network throughout Ontario, the Atlantic provinces, and Québec.

Canadian musicians in the early stages of their careers are invited to submit a concert project through which they can communicate their love of good music and stimulate audiences to enjoy specific aspects of the world of music. The tours count up to fifteen concerts over 4 to 6 weeks periods between September 2021 and May 2022.

* Applicants must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents having participated in less than 2 JMC tours.

Choice of repertoire
The choice of repertoire (about 80 minutes of music) should focus on what the musicians feel they do best, as well as on a specific kind of music or thematic idea that particularly interests them. In JMC concerts, it is important that the musicians speak to the audience during the concert, to introduce the works and their composers, to discuss the theme, and to engage the audience. This may be done in either French or English, depending on the venue.

*A minimum of one Canadian work is required.

Potential candidates
Potential candidates are Canadian citizens or permanent residents. They must possess a solid background in classical music and must be comfortable speaking in public in both official languages, in a manner suitable to hosting their concert in a simple and engaging style. They should also be reliable and self-sufficient to the extent that they can travel by themselves, which implies being able to drive a car and have a driving licence free of any restrictions.

Special consideration will be given to applicants between 18 and 28 years of age. Candidates 30 years of age and under at the audition date will be considered.

Video auditions
JMC auditions will now be held via videos. We ask for three (3) works of your proposed repertoire with a introduction, as if you were addressing an audience, made accessible via YouTube links. Maximum 20 minutes total.

All audition videos must be high-quality with excellent audio, shot from one angle with a single fixed camera (no zooming, tilting, or panning). Videos must not be edited, enhanced or modified in any way.

You can submit one (1) YouTube link that includes three (3) works and their introduction, or three (3) separate links with each piece and introduction. Maximum 20 minutes total.
