PRO MUSICA Cancellation and postponement of concerts

The Premier of Quebec has requested the collaboration of the entire population in order to limit the consequences of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Among the measures adopted by the government is an indefinite ban on events involving more than 250 people. Pro Musica must therefore cancel or postpone concerts scheduled in a near future.

Due to the closure of Place des Arts, the next concert of the Mélodßnes series, with the Atelier lyrique of the Opéra de Montréal, scheduled for March 19 at the Salle Claude-Léveillée, has been cancelled and postponed to a later date.

The OSM, which is our partner in the RĂ©citals series, has also decided to close the Maison Symphonique, which implies the cancellation of the March 20 rendezvous for the concert featuring Gerald Finley and Jean-Yves Thibaudet.

Finally, the last concert of the Pierre-Rolland series, with Kerson Leong, Sehiy Salov and StĂ©phane TĂ©treault, scheduled for April 9 at 8 p.m. at the Pierre-Mercure Hall of the Centre Pierre-PĂ©ladeau, which has been maintained until now, will finally be cancelled and postponed, given the request by the Minister of Culture and Communications to the promoters of all performance venues in Quebec to close their doors for a period of 30 days, starting March 14, 2020. 

For ticket refunds or postponements, Pro Musica will communicate with all ticket holders, except for the MĂ©lodĂźnes concert on March 19, for which it is possible to contact the Place des Arts box office.

In order to support Pro Musica’s mission and to limit the consequences of these cancellations, it is suggested that you consider making a donation rather than requesting a ticket refund. The current situation with the COVID-19 and the cancellation of concerts is significantly affecting our artists, our activities and the cultural community as a whole. 

Founded in 1948, the Société Pro Musica promotes chamber music in Montreal. Year after year, the organization enriches the Montreal music scene by presenting a diversified repertoire. For 71 years now, Pro Musica has been offering the public the best of chamber music.
