Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and following the measures imposed by government authorities, it is with great sorrow that we announce the cancellation of the 11th edition of MISQA (McGill International String Quartet Academy) which should have taken place this summer from August 9 to 22, 2020.
Since 2010, we are proud to have encouraged and supported the development of so many artists in search of an ideal of rigor and artistic integrity. The sense of community that has developed among artists at MISQA as well as among concertgoers is truly astonishing and speaks to the great power of arts that can indeed change and shape lives.
Although difficult, this decision had become necessary in order to protect the health and well-being of our audience, students, artists and our team.
We would like to thank Ms. Constance Pathy for her exceptional support during the first ten years as well as during these difficult times.
