Montreal International Music Competition Announces New Jury President

The Montreal International Music Competition has announced the appointment of former New York Philharmonic Executive, Zarin Mehta as its new jury president

The Montreal International Music Competition, in Canada, has today announced the appointment of former New York Philharmonic executive, Zarin Mehta as its new competition jury president.

A trained accountant, Mehta has served long-term leadership positions with the Montreal Symphony, Ravinia Festival and the New York Philharmonic.

He will replace Canadian philanthropist and competition co-founder André Bourbeau - who passed away last month.

“The Concours Musical International de Montréal is a world-class event that has launched the careers of some extremely talented instrumentalists and singers … when I was approached, I saw this as an opportunity to pursue my lifelong interest in nurturing young talent …” the brother of famed conductor Zubin Mehta, has said.

“I am deeply honored to preside over such an eminent jury for a competition of this caliber,” the 79-year-old has said.

Previous prize winners include VC Artists Ayana Tsuji, Marc Bouchkov, Benjamin Beilman, Nikita Borisoglebsky, Noah Bendix-Balgley, Stephen Waarts, Zeyu Victor Li, Ji Young Lim, Fedor Rudin, Ji Won Song, Minami Yoshida and Bomsori Kim.
