EVERY YEAR, THE ViU ORGANIZES :

  • A concert - the pieces played are selected anonymously by a jury of music professionals. The call for works is launched in October and November for a concert that takes place every winter in Montreal, integrated into the regular season of Le Vivier, which allows for great visibility and professional presentation conditions.
  • The Interuniversity Collaboration Project (ICP), which brings together performers and creators around a project built together throughout the year with mentoring. The ICP results in recordings of works, which are very useful for the portfolios of musicians at the beginning of their careers.
  • Meetings, discussions, work-in-progress sharing spaces, networking evenings, workshops and open rehearsals, offering members the opportunity to get closer to the actors of the new music world.
