The 19th edition of the classical music contest CLASSIVAL was a flawless success! Nearly 50 young musicians performed in front of the public and for a jury and allowed us to witness the breathtaking competitions and all competitors in each category made us enjoy special moments, regardless of the age group in which they were registered for. From the younger ones to the older ones , each brought a special color : Serina Lee, small violonist, gold medalist Ezekiel Séguin , who completed his collection by winning the bronze medal that was missing, Ember - Leah Reed, that we discovered through the television show Virtuoso with Gregory Charles , won the silver medal and added a gold medal to his tally along with two other family members, and Ashley Colton, in a fantastic string trio.
Our young flutists, Marie-Lou Brunet, Anne-Sophie Ernst and Tabaka Thomas Auger, in all three different age categories, who took us through the ages, from classic to contemporary. Eve Dessureault, Emma Fekete and Claudiane Moreau, singers whose voices filled the concert hall. Pianists Elizabeth Pion, Carl Zhang and Jennifer Liu played Ravel, Liszt and Chopin.
Étienne Déziel (guitarist) class 19-to 25 years and Glubochansky and Lea (violin) Class 11-to 14 charmed us. We unfortunately can not name them all here but all participants and medalists, we say thank you for letting us live these beautiful musical moments.
