If the world was not dealing with this pandemic, we would be getting ready to celebrate Montreal’s biggest festival this week; the International Jazz Fest! The city really comes to life during this festival at the Quartier des Spectacles. It is like the entire city is having a party and the world is invited to it! We usually have tourists and performing artists from all over the world participating! There are free outdoor concerts every night and more intimate private venues as well. In addition to the incredible music, there are food vendors, souvenir stands, DJs, games, and street performers to enjoy.  We always looked forward to taking our students in both our adult and Young Learners programmes to the festival as an afternoon or evening activity.  The students were always captivated by the music, the performances and the festive atmosphere.

We were sad to learn that all outdoor festivals were cancelled this year because of the virus. The city of Montreal is known for hosting over 120 festivals a year and the Jazz Festival is by far the biggest!

We were delighted to hear this week that Montreal’s Jazz Festival will still take place with a special online edition using a digital platform. From June 27 to June 20 between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m., jazz lovers can still enjoy live music!

The Festival’s General Manager commented “Despite the challenging circumstances this year, we are thrilled to be able to offer an innovative solution to get the music out to the fans”.

You simply need to go to montrealjazzfest.com to enjoy live music all weekend long!  The performances will include images from our beloved past Jazz Festival performances.  We will be promoting Montreal’s magical Jazz Festival to our EC Montreal students who are currently taking English and French online lessons with EC Virtual.
