L’Oasis Musicale at Christ Church Cathedral
Every Saturday at 4.30 pm throughout the year you are warmly invited to attend a concert in the cathedral. The “Oasis Musicale” weekly concert series supports and promotes local and international emerging musicians, many of whom are studying at music colleges in Montreal and starting out on their career. The concerts are open to all and there is no entry charge, and the Oasis team hope you will so enjoy the concert that you will be delighted to make a free-will offering of $10-$20 to support the concert series, the artists and the mission of the cathedral.
The concerts feature a range of musicians, from solo instrumentalists and singers to ensembles, small orchestras, and choirs. The repertoire is mainly classical music, but occasionally you might hear some popular, folk, religious, or traditional music.
Information on upcoming concerts can be found on the L’Oasis Musicale facebook page and on the L’Oasis Musicale websiteL’Oasis Musicale Facebook Page L’Oasis Musicale website
L’Oasis Musicale seeks to preserve and develop Christ Church Cathedral as an important spiritual and cultural venue in the heart of downtown, to attract new audiences to the concerts and new visitors to the cathedral, and to support and encourage local musicians.
