Philippe Sly, bass-baritone, Canada

“The CMIM not only supported me and my career in unforeseeable ways but also gave me the confidence to be an individual artist.”

1st Prize Winner of the CMIM in 2012

Beatrice Rana, pianist, Italy

“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 CMIM in 2011

Benjamin Beilman, violinist, USA

“My experience with the CMIM 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 CMIM's tireless work and support, I would not be where I am today.”

Benjamin Beilman, violinist, USA
1st Prize Winner of the CMIM in 2010

Nareh Arghamanyan, pianist, Armenia

"The CMIM 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.”
