Enjoy a trio of extraordinary talented young musicians with a passion for chamber music!
For a third consecutive year, Les amis de la montagne invite Mount Royal walkers and music lovers alike to enjoy a delightful series of musical Sunday afternoons. Songs, famous classical airs, flamenco and jazz rhythms, the vibrant melodic sweeps of string ensembles and recorders... From one free concert to the next, presented monthly from May through to October in the stunning surroundings of the Mount Royal Chalet, the 2015 season will span a variety of musical genres.
Keeping the great musical tradition of this Beaux Arts style chalet alive, Les dimanches en musique au Chalet du Mont-Royal shine a light on the talent of young musicians trained for the most part in musical institutions established on the mountain. After each concert, members of the public are invited to discover the Mount Royal Chalet – its history, architecture and paintings – in a guided tour offered by Les Amis de la montagne.
Admission is free. No reservations required.
