Upcoming Activities

To keep you informed about our activities, please subscribe to our newsletter and consult the news feed area of our Facebook page.

Exhibitions-Concert

Every year, we propose original events, where the public can discover and try the most recent works of our members. During these exhibitions, the greatest musical talents join the height of craftsmanship for unique chamber music concerts.

 

This year we are looking forward to exhibit in Quebec City for the first time.

 

We are also very pleased with our new partnership with the Concours Musical International de Montréal. During the competition we will hold a live workshop where 13 violin makers and 4 bow makers will work together at Bourgie Hall to make a violin and a bow (value of $20,000) which will be presented as a prize to the laureate.

​​​​Corda Program

Chamber Music Concerts in Schools

As part of our educational mission, the goal of the Corda program is to bring chamber music to children of all social and cultural backgrounds, in exposing them to a "live" concert by a small ensemble like a string quartet. Our presentations are graciously offered to public elementary schools. In order to support future professional musicians, we mainly select and hire quartets of the new generation.

Current season

We are presently working on planning our current seasonal interventions.

If you would like to have your school involved or to obtain more information, please write to info@themakersforum.org. The execution of the Corda program is made possible thanks to our partner Canimex.
