The Montreal International Music Competition, in Canada, has today announced the appointment of former New York Philharmonic executive, Zarin Mehta as its new competition jury president.

He will replace Canadian philanthropist and competition co-founder André Bourbeau - who passed away last month.
“The Concours Musical International de Montréal is a world-class event that has launched the careers of some extremely talented instrumentalists and singers … when I was approached, I saw this as an opportunity to pursue my lifelong interest in nurturing young talent …” the brother of famed conductor Zubin Mehta, has said.
“I am deeply honored to preside over such an eminent jury for a competition of this caliber,” the 79-year-old has said.
