As part of the Bavaria-Quebec lyrical exchanges program, the State of Bavaria Quebec Office is proud to present the annual concert of the Jeunes Ambassadeurs lyriques program.

The German-Bavarian evening in Montreal on November 8, 2013, will, as each year, be the occasion to discover emerging classical talents from Quebec and Canada as they will sing Lieder and opera arias from German-speaking composers. Also on the program will be Ms. Christiane Marie Riedel, mezzo-soprano from the Nuremberg Opera House, in an opera aria by Richard Strauss.

On Sunday, November 10, the Gala concert will give the most talented among those young people the opportunity to be selected by one of the European theater or opera directors sitting on the International Selection Committee. This year Bavaria will be represented by:

In the past, Les Jeunes Ambassadeurs lyriques unveiled such talents as the soprano Marie-Josée Lord (laureate in 1996 and 2001), and enabled several young Canadian singers to go work in Europe.
