Montreal Classical Music Festival

YOUNG MUSICIANS WHOSE TALENT WILL AMAZE

more than 50 years of history

Formerly part of the NDG Arts and Letters Festival, the Montreal Classical Music Festival draws each year an increasing number of participants as well as attracting a greater public audience.

After being cared for by Mrs. Milda Ruffo for many years, the directorship of the Festival was taken over in 2000 by the QMTA, in partnership with the Borough of Verdun. 

Since 2019, the event is presented and hosted by the prestigious École de musique Vincent-d'Indy
