Festival de Lanaudière / Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay
The largest classical music festival in Canada, performing symphonic and choral music, chamber music, with internationally famous soloists.
The Festival de Lanaudière presents more than 14 concerts in the amphitheatre and also offers several concerts in the churches of the region throughout the festival.
Renamed in 2010 in memory of Father Fernand Lindsay, who devoted a significant part of his life to classical music, the amphitheatre was built in 1989 in a 70-hectare park located alongside the L’Assomption River. This outdoor concert hall has a capacity for 1,996 people in the covered section and 5,000 in the grassy area. Since the summer of 1995, the Société de la Place des Arts has been managing the Fernand-Lindsay Amphitheatre. Outstanding acoustics, a charming site and the quality of concerts presented during the Festival de Lanaudière, held in July and August, make it a unique venue, attracting an increasing number of visitors each year.
