Bach and Montreal : Reconnecting with Classical Music at Festival

Johann Sebastian Bach remains one of the greatest composers of the Baroque period. Montreal is celebrating 10 years of the le Festival Bach Montreal/Montreal Bach Music Festival November 18 – December 4, 2016. Given Montreal’s wonderful repertoire of talent, one of the signature features of this festival is the presence of local Montreal talent with international artists who perform at the Festival. An idea that started as a 4 day initiative in 2005 is now two weeks of decadent classical music.

Among a variety of concerts on offer, the highlights include the celebrated artist Yo-Yo Ma who will be playing at the Gala Concert on December 2, 2016. For details, click HERE.

The local talent will include the McGill Chamber Orchestra performing the six Brandenburg Concertos on November 29, 2016. For details click HERE.
