"Paris has long delighted everyone with its beautiful architecture, its top-notch food, and its buzzing night life. The wonderful harpist Valérie Milot and renowned Canadian conductor Tania Miller will share Paris’s musical splendour and sensitivity with us in a program combining the Impressionism of Debussy and Ravel with the Romanticism of Boieldieu. Without a doubt, the harp is best suited to unveil the entire colour palette of these magical works. You’ll have an opportunity to rediscover violinists Amélie Benoit-Bastien and Hubert Brizard in the second half of the concert—two professional musicians you’re familiar with by now."

Jean-François, conductor and artistic advisor


A sought-after soloist, harpist Valérie Milot has had a brilliant career. Her YouTube channel has more than three million views! Winner of the 2008 European Prize, she is the first harpist in nearly 100 years to win this great honour. Several other prizes followed, including Radio-Canada’s Revelation of the Year, the Prix d'interprétation at the Cité des Arts de Paris International Harp Competition, the Prix Opus Découverte of the Year and several nominations for the ADISQ.

Recently appointed interim principal of the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra, Canadian Tania Miller also served as musical director of the Victoria Symphony Orchestra for 14 years. In addition to her involvement with the Calgary Opera, she has participated in many other opera productions as artistic director or conductor at the Michigan Opera and McGill Opera, among others.




Founded in 1983 by the late Yuli Turovsky, the I Musici de MontrĂ©al Chamber Orchestra is a string orchestra composed of 15 exceptional musicians whose vast repertoire spans from the 17th century to the present day. Jean-François Rivest, known for his energy and passionate style, has been the conductor since January 2021. I Musici de MontrĂ©al is a unique musical program: discovery, tradition and innovation. How to resist?

We are proud to announce the continuation of the project Tous des mæstros in collaboration with the organization Le Temps d'une Pause, and made possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Quebec and the City of Montreal, under the Cultural Development Agreement of Montreal. Over the next few weeks, a group of seniors from the Emmaus HLM in the Saint-Michel district will have the opportunity to attend musical workshops with a music therapist, our chef Jean-François Rivest and our musicians. At the end of the project, the participants will challenge themselves to conduct the orchestra of 15 musicians, in rehearsal, in place of our conductor. A beautiful goal that stimulates surpassing and self-esteem, all in music!


Our success depends on your support.
