17 concerts are added to the previously announced programming
Resuming concerts at the majestic Bourgie Hall was a challenge that many would have thought difficult to surmount. We are overjoyed and proud to reconnect with the public, artists, and creators who, over its first nine seasons, have helped to make the venue such an exciting musical hub. Bourgie Hall is delighted to be bringing its concerts back to the live stage!
Solidarity: the driving force behind cultural revival
It is thanks to the outstanding contributions of local musicians that Bourgie Hall is now positioned to take part in a revival of cultural events in Montreal. The public will finally be able to reconnect with these talented artists! After unveiling the content of its first 39 concerts of the 2020–2021 season, today, Bourgie Hall announces the second portion of its fall programming, which will run from November 19 to December 20, inclusively.
17 concerts will be added to the previously announced 36, for a total of 56 concerts
to be presented for the enjoyment of live audiences at Bourgie Hall,
from September 16 to December 20.
See programming details below
From jazz to classical, through contemporary music, a musical talk on traditional Quebec folk music, the return of musicians of the OSM, concerts for the whole family, performances featuring Persian or Inuit musical styles, not to mention Christmas classics: a panorama of styles and high-calibre artists awaits you again this year!
