A networking forum for highly promising Canadian classical musicians in support of their international career development


Taking advantage of its position as an international hub for classical music in Canada, the Festival de Lanaudière offers its mentorship program. Made possible thanks to the generosity of the Fondation Père-Lindsay and the Jacques Martin Fund, this project allows six young Canadian classical musicians to create privileged professional ties with international musicians performing at the Festival this summer.

Thank you to our partners


We are pleased to announce the six candidates who have been selected for the 2023 edition of our mentorship program.

From July 21 to 29, these six performers will discover behind the scenes of the Festival and will have exclusive access to the artists, agents and cultural managers present at the Festival!

Valuable encounters

During the 2023 edition, program participants had the chance to talk in depth with conductors Leonardo García Alarcón and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and pianists Angela Hewitt and Marc-André Hamelin.

They also chatted with a number of leading figures in the arts community:lizabeth Sobol et Christopher Shiley (Saratoga Performing Arts Center) – Janice Price (ex-PDG du Banff Centre et du Lincoln Center) ; Fabienne Voisin et Benjamin Goron (l’Orchestre Métropolitain).
