Les AMIS Concerts has introduced new performers, new repertoire and innovative music-making to the classical music canon since incorporating in 1983.

Les AMIS' primary goal continues to be to nurture talented young musicians at the earliest stages of their professional careers. It is also its policy to introduce them to works by contemporary Canadian composers at every opportunity. Emerging artists are showcased with more established performers who, in many cases, were first presented by Les AMIS at the beginning of their careers. Les AMIS aims to achieve its goals by sponsoring recitals with programs containing works selected by the performers themselves. As well, at least one Canadian composition is recommended or commissioned by Les AMIS especially for them. In this way, the Les AMIS audience is continuously introduced to upcoming artists as well as new Canadian music repertoire.
