Dear music-loving friends,

In the light of the last announcements made by our governments to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are forced to cut current season short. The benefit concert planned for June 9 and the Académie de musique ancienne de Saint-Camille, from June 12 to 14, are both cancelled, in addition to all our April concerts.

All dissemination activities that were to happen before August 31, including Le Conseil des arts de Montréal en tournée présente Nicandro e Fileno, are also cancelled.

We would like to reiterate our support to the government as well as to the citizens in this fight against the virus. We stand wholeheartedly behind those who fight on a daily basis and those who are affected by this crisis.


Postponed or cancelled?

We are currently considering various rescheduling scenarios concerning our 2020-2021 season. The concert Pièces de clavecin en concerts will likely be cancelled, while the Les Quatre Messes brèves de J.S. Bach will postponed.

We are hard at work in order to present to you a rich and varied 2020-2021 season comprised of four concerts. You can rest assured that we will compensate our musicians and contributors fairly, no matter the situation.


Refund or donation?

In order to simplify ticketing management, we offer to refund the unused tickets of the seasonal passport to all our subscribers. You also have the option to make your purchase a donation, if that is your wish.

We will call all our subscribers in the upcoming weeks to discuss which option best suit your needs.

We will also contact all our individual ticket-holders for the April concerts.


From our living room to yours!

Francis Colpron has also started to concoct you some little split-screen baroque hors-d’œuvres, in order to add a little musical brightness to your quarantine. You can view them all on our website.

If you have any questions, you can communicate your concerns via email at, or by calling the following number: (514) 634-1244.


In solidarity,

Francis Colpron
