Louis Michiels

Horn player, composer and music publisher Louis Michiels studied music in the Royal Conservatory of Liège, Belgium. Before 1914 he immigrated to Montreal, where he became quite actively involved in that city’s musical life. Not long thereafter he began to publish a number of incidental pieces for piano in a local newspaper. Around 1925 he co founded the Belgian-Canadian Musical Institute which was modeled after European instructional methods. That year he also founded Edition Belgo-Canadienne, which published works by Canadian composers as well as a number of treatises by Belgian musicians. Although the firm was sold around 1929, it appears that most of the company’s inventory was destroyed by fire some six years later. In 1927 he helped to found the Society of Musician Artists. However, in 1930 it was reported that he and thirty other members had been forced to resign due to “ulterior motives.”
