Montreal Public Pianos 2017
Public Pianos in Double Occupancy
From 24 to 27 August, JMC will observe the 4 o-clock mark in music at the public pianos!
Exceptionally as part of this programming, twin pianos will be offered to skilled pianists to make the streets resound with a repertoire made up of favorite works for piano four-hands... and even eight-hands!
Join the fun and enjoy this open-air and completely free programming taking place at the placottoir located at the junction of Henri-Julien street and Mont-Royal Avenue East.

Right before dinnertime, this playful concert will put your musical memory to the test and stir up your childhood nostalgia as you will hear the musical themes of Beauty and the Beast, Frozen, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, Star Wars... and more! An inspired prelude to a movie night!
Jeanne Amièle and Simon Larivière, piano
As a conclusion to four days of music, the Amièle-Larivière duo will play with delight a selection of works composed by Mozart, Schubert, Brahms and Debussy and written especially for piano four-hands, all of which have become classics of the genre.
This project is also a unique chance for JMC to make its twin vocation shine: to make classical music accessible to the widest audience possible and promote young and talented canadian musicians. JMC has prepared a completely FREE programming, for a hot and lively summer at JMC House!
