MUSICAL SUNDAYS AT THE CHALET DU MONT-ROYAL - 2014 Edition

A series of 6 free concerts presented at the Chalet du Mont-Royal, from May to October, in collaboration with the Ville de Montréal, TD Bank Group, principal partner and Journal Métro, media partner.

This series of concerts aims to promote the talent of young music students hailing from musical institutions on the flanks of the mountain and wishes to re-establish the musical tradition of this exceptional site. The concerts reflect the Ville de Montréal’s desire to offer cultural programming that highlights the Chalet and its surroundings, near the lookout.

Watch the summer's concerts on the video produced by NOMADlive.tv.
