Fresh air

The largest classical music festival in Canada takes to the great outdoors.

Each year, Canada’s largest classical music festival offers a series of concerts under the stars at the Joliette natural amphitheatre and in the region’s churches. For five weeks, a party atmosphere reigns at the Festival de Lanaudière, with families, couples and friends picnicking on the grass while enjoying the lovely music and fresh air. The acoustics in the natural amphitheatre (which can hold up to 8 000 people and twice as many ears) are simply phenomenal; not a single note fades away before plucking at the heartstrings. Festival de Lanaudière is a musical experience without compare, with renowned soloists and musicians striking the perfect note.
