The Quebec Festival of Youth Orchestras

concert

The Quebec Festival of Youth Orchestras brings together orchestras from all over Quebec as well as from other provinces and countries, and takes place every two years during the Easter weekend.

The orchestras are twinned, and rehearse together intensively under the direction of renowned guest conductors. Some of the biggest names in the field take the podium, as can be seen from the list below.

The next Festival takes place from March 30 to April 1, 2018.

All concerts are open to the public.
