(November - December)
In 2019, Festival Bach Montréal launched its Off-Festival Bach. Located in a 3,000-square-foot space in downtown Montreal, this new initiative was developed with the intention of creating a unique, contemporary and welcoming environment to make classical music accessible to a wide audience. The Off-Festival Bach therefore offers a completely free program (45-minute concert series, impromptu performances by Bach Festival Montreal artists, open rehearsals, discussions, etc.) in conjunction with the official festival program. The program is essentially made up of artists from Quebec and crowned by brief appearances by international artists present at the Festival Bach Montréal.
