The eleventh edition of the Prix collégien de musique contemporaine (PCMC) is a music prize awarded each year to the Quebec contemporary work “coup de cœur” by Quebec students enrolled in music at the Cégep or conservatory of music.
The Canadian Music Centre in Quebec, in partnership with Cégep Marie-Victorin (Montreal), is pleased to unveil the presentation videos of the five candidates for the Prix collégien de musique contemporaine (PCMC), whose works will be featured in participating CEGEPs across the province this spring. For this 12th edition of the PCMC, the composers:
and François-Hugues Leclair qualified for the final.
The objectives of this competition are to promote contemporary music, to introduce music students to new styles of writing and sound worlds, and to develop their critical sense and capacity for analysis. Bursaries will then be awarded to the three winning composers as determined by a student jury.
