Since 1979, JMO has supported the career development of the finest young professional instrumentalists and singers. Artists audition across the country and are recruited at national and international competitions. The artists chosen to tour Ontario are of the highest caliber, know how to communicate with audiences, and serve as role models for others.
These tours have provided stage experience and exposure for many young artists who have since gone on to make their mark and continue to do so. Some emerging artists that have toured with Jeunesses Musicales include Russel Braun, Cecilia String Quartet, Jonathan Crow, James Ehnes, Gryphon Trio, Scott St. John, to name a few.
Emerging Artists Concerts are able to tour across Ontario and throughout Canada thanks to support provided in part by Desjardins. (or by Desjardins donations to Jeunesses Musicales Canada).
