Thank you Jackie! Thank you Jackie!

Quebec philanthropist Jacqueline Desmarais passed away March 3 at the age of 89. Her generosity has contributed to the success of the CMIM; many young candidates at the CMIM have been able to build their careers thanks to her philanthropic efforts.

“The Concours musical international de Montréal, like many other organisations, has greatly benefited from the support, generosity, presence, inspiration and friendship of Mrs Desmarais. She contributed to our growth and reputation, and we will honor her memory by pursuing our work.” François R. Roy, vice-president CMIM
