“The MIMC not only supported me and my career in unforeseeable ways but also gave me the confidence to be an individual artist.”
Philippe Sly, bass-baritone, Canada
1st Prize Winner of the MIMC in 2012
“The CMIM gave me much more than a first prize: just after the competition I received so many invitations for concerts in America, Europe and Asia, I had the opportunity of recording my first CD. If someone would ask me: did the Montréal Competition help your career? I would unhesitatingly answer: it made possible my dream of being a pianist come true.”
Beatrice Rana, pianist, Italy
1st Prize Winner of the MIMC in 2011
“My experience with the MIMC has been a complete dream come true. It has provided me with all the means needed to begin an international solo career: concert opportunities with great orchestras and conductors, career guidance and mentorship, and financial support for innovative career-building projects. Without the MIMC's tireless work and support, I would not be where I am today.”
Benjamin Beilman, violinist, USA
1st Prize Winner of the MIMC in 2010
"The MIMC has been one of the strongest and most important experiences in my life. I feel very grateful to the competition, thanks to which many doors opened up and a lot of wonderful opportunities came my way. I took part in various other competitions before, but I have never seen such a warm atmosphere, where there is so much care and love shown towards the contestants.”
Nareh Arghamanyan, pianist, Armenia
