Following the Auditions, all applicants will receive by mail detailed notes from the adjudicators on their performance.


The Audition Application Form and Regulations are available here. Please print copies as required. IMPORTANT: One application form per student or ensemble. Applications can be emailed or sent by regular mail at these coordinates


Audition participants will be informed by email within 7 days after the auditions whether or not they will play in the Concert.

The concert, free admission with a goodwill offering, will take place on Sunday, April 14th at 2:00 p.m. at Union Church, 24 Maple Avenue, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.

At the end of the Concert, prizes will be awarded to the outstanding students of the following: keyboard, strings, winds and ensembles in both Junior and Senior age groups.

Please note that students who have previously been awarded the First Prize in their age category and instrument group or the Lakeshore Chamber Orchestra Performance Award will not be eligible for a second such prize. They are, however, eligible to play again in the Concert and are encouraged to do so.

Parents are asked to let us know if they do not wish their child(ren) to be present in any of our published photos.


Please note that at the end of the Student Concert on April 14th, the Lakeshore Chamber Orchestra will present their Performance Award. The winner(s) will be invited to play as soloist(s) with the Orchestra in one of the Orchestra's concerts during the 2019-20 Season.

The Award is open to string and wind instrument players as well as to ensembles made up of string or wind players. Unfortunately, it cannot be made open to pianists as there is no piano available in the Orchestra's concert hall. Representatives of the Orchestra will meet with the winner(s), and with his/her teacher once the Award is announced to select the composition to be played with the Orchestra.

Teachers are encouraged to discuss the Award with their students. Those students who wish to be considered for the Award need to be available to perform with the Lakeshore Chamber Orchestra either in the fall of 2019 or spring of 2020. They should indicate their interest on the Audition Application Form.

We look forward to receiving applications from your students.

Thank you,
