Debut Atlantic | Début Atlantique

Founded in 1979, Debut Atlantic is one of this country’s most dynamic classical music touring organizations. In fact, the ‘Debut Atlantic tour’ has evolved into a much coveted opportunity for Canada’s emerging classical musicians. The extensive list of artists waiting to be added to the touring roster and the calibre of our alumni is a testament to their success.

Debut Atlantic receives over 75 submissions each year from outstanding Canadian artists interested in touring the Atlantic Region as a Debut Atlantic artist. Through a lot of listening and much deliberation, the Artistic Selection Committee chooses five artists to make up the Debut Atlantic season. Each artist spends two weeks touring the region, bringing their talents to a variety of communities across Atlantic Canada. Debut Atlantic covers all touring costs (artist travel, accommodations and per diem) making it affordable for presenters to bring amazing live performances to their communities.
