The Montreal Chamber Music Festival is proud to announce its newest project, A DAY IN THE LIFE!

This new series of 10 videos, accessible on the Festival’s website, will begin on Monday,
September 21st.

Each video will chronicle the life of a brilliant young Canadian violinist or cellist, all winners of the Musical Instrument Bank Competition of the Canada Council, as each finds innovative ways to adapt to current sanitary measures due to Covid-19.  All ten artists perform on great instruments made by luthiers such as Stradivari and Guarneri, all graciously on loan for three years.

All musicians have chronicled their day, each in their own way, using their own recording devices, revealing what their confinement has been like and how it has affected them. The results are simply stunning; every video gives an intimate, in-depth look at how each artist has coped personally and professionally. These videos are unusual; they are revealing; they are entertaining, and they will touch your hearts by their distinctly human quality.

Join us September 21st for this ten-week journey into the lives of amazing performers as told personally in their own voice and using their own digital creativity.

More new digital initiatives are planned, uniquely for your pleasure and entertainment!

Stay safe, stay healthy and celebrate with us as the Montreal Chamber Music Festival engages you on digital platforms while we plan a return to the concert stage in May 2021 to honor our 25th anniversary, a year later than planned!

With kindness and care,
