First, during our traditional cocktail reception, the 300 or so guests can appreciate the performances of young and talented musicians in the making, most of whom are graduating in music at Collège d’Alma. In addition, we offer scholarships to the most deserving, especially during the grand finale of the Rives-du-Saguenay school board’s Show des Rives. We give them the opportunity to perform in a professional setting on our stages, in addition to distributing hundreds of tickets so that they can attend our Festival’s big shows. We also offer them privileged access to relevant conferences promoting the benefits of playing music as part of a healthy and balanced life. This initiative will feature newly added activities this 2020. Our objective is simple: encourage our emerging musicians!
