"MONTREAL BAROQUE is an initiative of Susie Napper, Montreal cellist and gambist who was nominated “Personality of the Year 2002” by the Conseil Québecoise de la Musique. Old Montreal’s Early Music Festival, MONTREAL BAROQUE offers a unique opportunity to hear music of the 17th and 18th centuries, performed by Canadian and international celebrities, in appropriate and unusual settings. Snaking through the narrow streets of the Old City to the sound of a hundred flutes at the festival’s Grand Parade, relaxing at a garden concert, catching a choral concert in a chapel or simply enjoying a street performance, this festival gives a new cultural identity to Old Montreal, attracting international tourists and local music lovers as well as novices to Early Music.
