About the OMNI Contest
The OMNI Competition gives young musicians aged 7 to 17 the chance to showcase their talent in a healthy environment, promoting membership in the collective, a principle dear to OM musicians and their conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin. The creation of a network of young musicians sharing the same passion, enhanced by exchanges with musicians of the Orchestra, even in virtual, promises a formative experience for all participants.
