During four days in June, the Montreal Baroque Festival brings music to the downtown Montreal as well as in the Old Montreal! There’s something for everyone: a concert by a renowned ensemble in a beautiful concert hall; an intimate show by a young emerging artist in an unexpected place; an outside free concert; improv evenings in a café. Over the years, festival goers have discovered unexpected locations through music. A truly pleasant and fun experience! Founded in 2003 by Susie Napper, Matthias Maute joined her as co-artistic director in 2014.
2016 edition: Tempest in a teapot! June 23-26, 2016
Theatre of tumultuous weather, Quebecers have courageously endured Nature's anger with courage and bravura! For four days as turbulent as the Quebec barometer, the 14th Montreal Baroque Festival will present a torrent of colorful musical passions, flooding the metropolis with cataclysmic musical tempests and a storm of ideas both mundane and magical. Come lightning or thunder, a Tempest in a Teapot will inundate the McGill Campus, Old Montreal and Philips Square with the music of Purcell, Bach, Boismortier etc, interspersed with a few rays of sunshine to blush the horizon before the hurricane hits! Button up and hold on to your umbrella!
