The City of Blainville is inviting performers and singer-songwriters aged 12 to 17 from the MRC of Thérèse-De Blainville to apply for the Blainville en chansons contest by February 26. Candidates will have the opportunity to record the demo of a song that they can keep afterwards. The jury will select the demos of fifteen young artists and then pass them on to the live audition stage on March 27th. Ten of them will take part in the great adventure and the final on June 18, at the Lionel-Groulx Theater.

This year, the finalists will have the chance to be sponsored by Steve Veilleux. Originally from Drummondville, Steve Veilleux founded the Kaïn group in 1990 with Yannick Blanchette, later joined by Patrick Lemieux and Éric Maheu. With his seven albums, his popular successes and his successful concert tours, Kaïn is an integral part of the Quebec musical landscape.

“This competition, created in 2006, has become an essential event on the regional artistic scene and contributes to offering a most interesting scenic and personal experience to our young artists. I invite all the teenagers of Blainville and the MRC who love song and music to register for this edition which promises to be very talented once again”, underlined Marie-Claude Collin , delegated adviser to the committee on community life.

The 2022 mentors

The finalists will be able to follow the development workshops offered by the artists Amylie and Julie Dassylva who are currently evolving on the Quebec scene, and who will act as mentors.
