Jeunesses Musicales Ontario is proud to present violinist Jinjoo Cho and
pianis Louise-Andrą©e Baril with their concert as part of the Desjardins
Concerts 2008-2009. This tour will bring the two musicians in many cities
throughout Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and British Colombia.

Violinist Jinjoo Cho won the First Grand Prize and the People's Choice Award
at the 2006 Montreal International Musical Competition, and the gold medal
at the 2005 Stulberg International String Competition. She has appeared as a
soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, the
Quebec Symphony Orchestra, the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, the Kalamazoo
Symphony, CityMusic Cleveland, and the Aspen Concert Orchestra. She has
worked with world renowned artists such as Robert McDuffie, Peter Oundjian,
Muhai Tang, and Kent Nagano. Ms. Cho appeared on a national radio broadcast
of From the Top in a program later designated best of the year. Ms. Cho has
given recitals in Seoul, Cleveland, Montreal, and New York, and she served
as a musician-in-residence at the Kentucky Center for Performing Arts. Ms.
Cho made her European debut in the Herkulessaal in Munich last season.
During the 2007-2008 seasons, Ms. Cho had performed in subscription concerts
with the Quebec Symphony, the Winnipeg Symphony, I Musici de Montrą©al, and
CityMusic Cleveland.

Ms. Cho, a dedicated orchestral and chamber musician, was a member of the
Wo¨į-Mą©n String Quartet. The group was coached by Peter Salaff, Donald
Weilerstein, Arnold Steinhardt and the Cavani, Pacifica, and Takąįcs String
Quartets. Her duo with cellist Joshua Roman regularly performs in Cleveland,
Seattle, and Spokane.

Ms. Cho, a native of Seoul, South Korea, attended the Yewon Art School. She
has been attending the Aspen Music Festival and School and was a member of
the Young Artist Program at the Cleveland Institute of Music from 2002
onward, in both venues as a student of Paul Kantor. She attended the Curtis
Institute of Music, studying there with Joseph Silverstein and Pamela Frank,
and is currently enrolled at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where she is
working as a student of Paul Kantor.

A native of Cornwall, pianist Louise-Andrą©e Baril is one of Canada's most
accomplished musicians. An arranger, soloist, chamber musician, vocal coach,
and rehearsal pianist, she has collaborated with major ensembles and
conductors in Canada and abroad. She is regularly invited to collaborate in
major international competitions. She appears on over forty recordings and
is regularly heard on Radio-Canada's airwaves. Passionate about opera, her
repertoire includes over one hundred operatic works. She is especially
dedicated to French vocal music.

Louise-Andrą©e takes a great interest in emerging artists and has established
several opera workshops and projects for young artists, such as the
Universitą© de Montrą©al's opera workshop and the Orford Arts Centre opera. A
much sought-after teacher, she works with several music institutions in
Quebec, Ontario, and the United States. Since 2007, Louise-Andrą©e Baril has
been an artistic advisor at Jeunesses Musicales of Canada, for the
movement's opera productions in particular.

Since 1949, Jeunesses Musicales of Canada has had a dual mission: to bring
fine music to audiences of all ages, especially 3 to 12-year-olds, and to
foster the careers of outstanding young professional instrumentalists,
singers and composers in Canada and abroad. Thanks to the support of its
partners and the work of hundreds of volunteers, Jeunesses Musicales of
Canada has become Canada's largest classical music performance network and
produces some 800 concerts a year. In 2000, the organization opened a new
building in Montreal that includes a 100-seat chamber music hall.
JMC is affiliated with Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI), founded in
1945 in Belgium and considered today by UNESCO as the world's leading
cultural organization dedicated to youth and music. Each year, Jeunesses
Musicales International's 41 national chapters organize more than 30,000
musical events, reaching an audience of some six million people.

This tour is made possible thanks to the financial support of the Mouvement
des caisses Desjardins, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Quą©bec, The
Canada Council for the Arts, Canadian Heritage, the Conseil des arts de
Montrą©al The Ontario Arts Council, and The Toronto Arts Council.
