Back for six indoor concerts in September


Elated to reconnect with its audience, Festival de Lanaudière presents “Autumn Notes,” an ambitious series of six indoor concerts, as well as surprise outdoor performances spread over two weekends in September. True to its finest tradition, the Festival welcomes the country’s greatest orchestras and classical musicians to the beautiful Lanaudière region!

“Having obtained the green light from Public Health authorities for 250-person gatherings, we were eager to immediately send a strong and clear message: music lives, and it brings us closer together! This is the very first fall season for the Festival, and its aim is to bring hope to the entire community,” says Artistic Director Renaud Loranger.

All concerts will be presented in the unique atmosphere of the Cathédrale de Joliette, authentic birthplace of Festival de Lanaudière. 250 tickets are available for each concert, for the price of $50 (taxes and service charges included). (suite…)

A word from the Artistic Director


Return to Essentials

While the health crisis continues to affect the entire planet, it has also revealed the extent to which people across the world are interrelated and united by this extraordinary ordeal. It is the beauty we have discovered amidst the upheaval since the spring: our shared fragility, the very opposite of individual self-sufficiency. The connection between an audience, artists, and creators in a shared physical space cannot be replaced, for it partakes of the substance of our humanity.
