A versatile and much sought-after musician, Victor Fournelle-Blain is equally at home playing the violin or the viola – as soloist, chamber musician or orchestral player. Currently Associate Principal Viola of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, he first studied violin at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal under Johanne Arel. Subsequent studies under Ani Kavafian brought him to the Yale School of Music, after which he studied the viola with André Roy at McGill’s Schulich School of Music. Winner of the 2012 Prix d’Europe, McGill’s 2014 Golden Violin Award, and second prize winner of the 2010 OSM Standard Life Competition, he has performed as soloist with orchestras such as the Orchestre Métropolitain and the Orchestre symphonique de Longueuil. He is violinist of the Grand-Duc Trio and performs regularly with renowned artists such as Charles Richard-Hamelin, Andrew Wan and Brian Manker. Victor Fournelle-Blain currently plays a violin made by Carlo Tononi and a viola by Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume, both generously loaned to him by Canimex.

BOSON MO violin
Third Prize winner at the 2013 Michael Hill International Violin Competition, Boson was named one of Canada’s “30 under 30 Top Classical Musicians of 2015” by CBC Radio- Canada. Recipient of the “Prix Joseph-Rouleau” at the 2010 Montreal International Violin Competition, he was a top-25 candidate at the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition and winner of Canada’s prestigious Sylva Geber Foundation Award. Additionally, he is a two-time winner of Canada Council for the Arts’ Musical Instrument Bank loan. Boson has been broadcast in the U.S. as well as on Radio New Zealand and CBC Radio-Canada. He has performed as soloist with many orchestras and has been featured at many summer festivals including the Banff Centre for the Arts, the Aspen Music Festival, Festival de Lanaudière, Vancouver Chamber Music Society, and the Festival Emilia-Romagna in Italy among others. Mo served as Acting Assistant Concertmaster of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in the autumn of 2017 and is now a member of the Houston Symphony. He will forever be a student of mentors Keqiang Li and Paul Kantor, and he currently performs on a violin by MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient Joseph Curtin.

A cellist endowed with “a rich imagination and a quick wit” (Diapason), Cameron Crozman has established himself as one of Canada’s rising stars. Named “Classic Revelation” 2019-20 by Radio-Canada, he regularly performs in North America and Europe, in large halls including the Philharmonie de Paris and the National Arts Center in Canada and – just as comfortably! – in such unique places as the “Qidi Vidi” brasserie in Saint-John’s. Playing as a soloist with the great Canadian orchestras, he also shares the stage with eminent musicians, including James Ehnes, Augustin Hadelich, André Laplante and James Campbell. After studying with Paul Pulford in Canada, Cameron perfected his skills at the Paris Conservatory in the class of Michel Strauss and Guillaume Paoletti, where he obtained his Cello Prize with the congratulations of the jury. He continued his studies at the Conservatory and obtained a chamber music prize (class of Claire Désert and Ami Flammer) and he was also a laureate of the Class of Excellence 2016-17 of Gautier Capuçon at the Louis Vuitton Foundation. Fully committed to music innovation, Cameron is constantly imagining new ways to share his art with the world. He undertakes artistic direction projects, setting up new chamber music festivals in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia and in Lliria in Spain (a UNESCO city of music). Holding an Artist-Performer Diploma in creation and contemporary repertoire, he debuts many pieces dedicated to him – and commissions new pieces from Canadian composers including Allan Gordon Bell, Kelly-Marie Murphy, Alexina Louie and Liam Ritz. He is also passionate about teaching, offering master classes at the Rainier III Academy in Monaco, the Mount Royal University Conservatory in Calgary and the Victoria Conservatory, among others. Cameron has recorded albums on the critically acclaimed ATMA Classique and Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo labels and can be heard regularly on CBC/Radio- Canada and Radio-France. His first album Cavatine was recorded with the Stradivarius cello “Bonjour” built c. 1696 , followed by a recording of the Suites de Britten – launched in Monaco in the presence of the Princess of Hanover. His latest release, Tapeo, presents a varied program of short pieces inspired by Spain – evoking an evening of “musical tapas”. His performances have also been recorded and broadcast by Medici.tv and Radio Classique. Cameron is very grateful to the Canada Council for the Arts, the Sylva Gelber Foundation and CBC/Radio-Canada for their support of his various projects. He currently plays on the Spanish cello “El Tiburon” from ca. 1769, attributed to Joannes Guillami of Barcelona, generously loaned by the Instrument Bank of the Canada Council for the Arts.

Meagan Milatz, winner of the 2024 Prix Opus “Discovery of the Year”, is “a remarkable pianist with a seemingly limitless palette of expression” (Le Devoir). Meagan regularly shares the stage with top international musicians including Andrew Wan, concertmaster of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra; Stefan Dohr, Principal Horn of the Berlin Philharmonic; Kai Gleusteen, concertmaster of the Orchestra del Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona, cellist Matt Haimovitz; and mandolinist Avi Avital. Meagan has appeared as soloist with Edmonton, Regina, Sherbrooke, and McGill Symphonies. She has performed in concert in Ireland (New Ross Piano Festival 2023), France, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Scotland, and Malta. Meagan’s duo “meagan&amy” won the first-ever 50-concert Pan- Canadian Tour offered by Jeunesses Musicales Canada, Debut Atlantic, and Prairie Debut. Meagan has a recording contract for nine albums of solo and chamber music with ATMA Classique. She is grateful to her teachers and lifelong mentors Cherith Alexander, Ilya Poletaev, fortepianist Tom Beghin, and Philip Chiu. www.meaganmilatz.com
