Montreal International Musical Competition

The Montreal International Musical Competition(MIMC) (French: Concours Musical International de Montréal) is a high-level musical competition for violin, piano, and voice, first established in 2002.

In keeping with the great tradition of classical music, the Competition aims to discover, reward and assist young singers, violinists and pianists who distinguish themselves through the mastery of their art. In so doing, the Competition strives to foster the emergence of the world's greatest young talents and promote their recognition and influence within the international artistic community.

The MIMC is now composed of four rounds: the preliminary round (based on audio recordings), the quarter finals, the semi-finals and the finals. The three disciplines of the Competition, voice, violin and piano, are featured on a rotating basis over a three-year cycle.

Since May 7, 2004, the Montreal International Musical Competition has been a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions. Created in 1957, this federation, headquartered in Geneva, represents a global network of internationally-recognized musical institutions. Only those competitions that meet the Federation's high musical and organization standards are admitted to its membership.

The 2010 edition dedicated to violin will be followed in 2011 with an edition devoted to piano, and in 2012 with a voice edition.
