AN EXCEPTIONAL DUO
Oliver Jones & Daniel Clarke Bouchard
The Montreal International Musical Competition (MIMC) is bringing together 14-year-old pianist Daniel Clarke Bouchard and his mentor, renowned jazz pianist Oliver Jones, for a concert that will see them join forces once again, for the first time on stage at the Maison symphonique de Montréal, on Monday, June 2, at 7:30 pm. An Exceptional Duo will offer the audience a musical program reflecting the interests of both musicians, who will take turns performing classical and jazz pieces, bringing their two worlds together for a few numbers. Bassist Éric Lagacé and drummer Jim Doxas, two well-known musicians on the Montreal jazz scene, will also be part of the concert.
The MIMC plays a key role in the finest tradition of classical concert music. The Competition seeks to discover and support young singers, violinists, and pianists who have distinguished themselves as masters of their art. Since the very first edition, dedicated to voice, in 2002, 2,300 candidates have applied to take part in the various editions. To the great delight of music lovers, 350 of them were given the opportunity to perform in Montreal.
