Jeunesses Musicales Canada

A non-profit organization, Jeunesses Musicales Canada (JM Canada) has a dual mission: to promote the performance of classical music, especially for young audiences and to help young professional instrumentalists, singers and composers develop their careers at the national and international levels. JM Canada became one of the first organizations to present professional calibre concerts in outlying regions far from major urban centres. Founded in 1949, JM Canada has presented tens of thousands of concerts to young audiences, families, and the general public across Canada. Annually, JM Canada offers over 650 concerts and 630 workshops presented by more than 120 artists in some 200 venues in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime provinces. They reach an audience of 130,000 people, including 103,000 children aged 3 to 12 years.
