In summer, the grand organs of the Basilica come to life! Since 2004, the titular organist Pierre Grandmaison has run the Grand Organ Festival of Montreal. Talented organists from all over are invited to perform great classical music or personal compositions during the festival. Be impressed by the impeccable acoustics of the Basilica and the remarkable sound of its great organs.
Thanks to its outstanding line-up, the festival has become a meeting place for fans of grandiose music on Sunday evenings in summer.
