The Orchestre de chambre I Musici de Montréal is a permanent 15-member chamber orchestra whose vast repertoire ranges from baroque music to contemporary music. Founded in 1983 by cellist and conductor Yuli Turovsky, who served as conductor until May 2011, I Musici de Montréal's exceptional quality quickly drew recognition: As early as 1987 the ensemble was named "chamber orchestra of the year" by the Canadian Music Council, and I Musici has since earned a distinguished reputation aborad. As well as a loyal public following, I Musici de Montréal has garnered widespread critical praise for its precision, virtuosity and high level of excellence -- all of which have served to confirm the orchestra's distinguished position on both the national and international stages.
In June 2011, conductor Jean-Marie Zeitouni was appointed principal conductor and artistic director of I Musici de Montréal. Hailed as one of the most brilliant young orchestra conductors in Canada for his expressive and convincing style, Jean-Marie Zeitouni graduated from the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal in conducting, percussion and composition.
