In a gesture that strengthens its commitment to today’s creators, the Festival de Lanaudière has joined forces for the first time in its history with the Vienna Philharmonic and the Dutch National Opera & Ballet to commission two works by Quebec composer and conductor Samy Moussa.

The 2021 edition to the rhythm of enchantment

A successful edition that marked the return of large-scale concerts in front of large crowds. In total, more than 18,000 festival-goers attended the Festival’s program of indoor concerts and recitals this summer, in addition to its new component of free musical walks.

A word from
the chief executive

“Several moments of this edition were extremely moving. We have received countless testimonials from festival goers, partners, volunteers, and artists, who all seem to have been stirred by this return to an—almost—normal concert experience. It was a year we will all certainly remember!”

A word from
the Artistic Director

“This success would never have been possible without the unconditional enthusiasm of our audience and the openness of institutions and artists with whom we collaborate. This edition demonstrated the exceptional talent of members of the Canadian music scene, in addition to showing the extent to which we all crave collective experiences. It was, in a sense, a rebirth, as much for the Festival as for music in Quebec as a whole rebirth.”
