Next live concert BACH GALA will be on 02 May 2021 at 14h30
‘Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything.’ – Plato
Since March 2020 cellists, violinists, violists, pianists, harpsichordists and all other musicians have been facing an imposed silence, causing their income to plummet. Your generous support of this Gala will be of great help to them, and will help them feel understood and supported during this unprecedented situation.
So please join us for this unique digital Bach Gala, featuring highlights from Festival Bach Montréal’s 2020 season, and the generous participation of Yo-Yo Ma and Kent Nagano.
All proceeds from the Gala will go to the musicians involved.
Recorded at Maison symphonique, Bourgie Hall, Saint-Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, Off-Festival Bach
May 2nd, 2:30 p.m. EST
