Music by the Sea
Mentorship Programme


The MBTS Fellowship Artist Mentorship Programme is one of Canada’s best focused and detailed chamber music opportunities available. It is an intensive ten-day period prior to the MBTS Festival.  Emerging artists are selected by invitation and work with Faculty to prepare chamber works which are subsequently performed at the festival, alongside Company Artists.  The selected artists attend as full scholarship Fellowship Artists (click to see past Fellowship Artists below).
