Thanks to the unwavering support of their visibly delighted public, over the years Bourgie Hall has become one of Quebec’s leading music venues. While the inaugural season featured 53 concerts, this 10th anniversary season has grown to nearly 100, not including guest presenters.
This new season will be one of reuniting, not only with the public and the performers—especially international artists—but also with the presentation of Year 7 of the Complete Cantatas of J.S. Bach, as well as the 3rd edition of the Palazzetto Bru Zane Festival, which this year invites all into the world of César Franck.
And, like the very first season, 2021–2022 is conceived entirely with the music lover in mind, newcomers included. There is something to captivate all fans of chamber music, piano and voice, jazz and world music, early music, Romantic music, and contemporary music, whatever their age.
