This was my first ever visit to Montreal and to the Jazz Festival. The muisc, street perfomances, the food was fantastic. I know that there are many places for people to vacation, but I would 100% rec...ommend the Jazz Festival week as must for anyone who enjoys good music and good food to make the first week in July a must for Montreal See More

I loved it. Listen amazing jazz in the street with wine or in Center Bell or in others, with new and old friends. Jazz from around the world.
I have to come back soon.

I highly recommend the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal. The venue is perfect - Spacious with lots of seating or standing room. The music was excellent and stands up to its name of Internati...onal. Coming from the south, I thoroughly enjoyed to cooler temperatures. The festival is entirely free but there are big name paid concerts that also look appealing. I love that all locals are bilingual. See More

Full of people who liked it and give 5 star reviews. Who loved Bob Dylan and Men Without Hats. But would be hard pressed to name 5 actual jazz artists...

It's become just another festival cashing in ...on booking any big name that will draw a crowd, no matter the genre.

Comments about great food and atmosphere are nice, but do not a Jazz Fest make.

This so-called Jazz Festival which never was a jazz festival is getting worse every year! At least in the past, even though it is not any kind of jazz festival, was oozing with energy and fun. This ye...ar, it was boring and lifeless! The last night was pathetic. The only good thing is that the layout of the festival space was much better and you didn't feel penned in as we often did. But really, besides a few very expensive indoor shows with some jazz celebrities, there was no jazz on public display. And there is a very good reason for that. Unless you water it down, the public does not like or buy jazz. Besides that perennial problem, the organization of the Jazz Festival continues to make mistakes and one of them is the it is relentlessly francophone. Few announcements are made in English and I see fewer Americans and visitors from the rest of Canada at the festival every year. I wouldn't visit it if I had to come to Montreal just for this.

Very sad news.

Johann Johannsson, the Icelandic composer behind the scores of “The Theory of Everything” and “Sicario,” died yesterday in Berlin. He was 48. Johannsson’s manager Tim …

Tonight!
Tickets available at the door.

“For over 25 years, I have suffered from panic attacks. Before I was diagnosed, I consulted a number of doctors and underwent a battery of tests, without success. At that time, few doctors were adequately trained to identify the symptoms. And so I lived with that illness without knowing how to treat it.

For years, I endured crisis after crisis, without understanding what was happening to me. Some attacks were so severe that I went to the ER, convinced that I was having a he...art attack…

And then one day, a country doctor was treating me for a bad case of bronchitis when he delivered the right diagnosis. All at once, an enormous weight was lifted from my shoulders.

Since then, I have taken medication that has changed my life. Today, I speak openly about my illness. I do so because I want to show that despite it, I can function normally. And the experience has revealed that by speaking about it with those around me, I have helped other people face their own similar situations.

Taking Action for the Future

Certainly, there are forms of mental illness more severe than the one that affects me. However, the advances made in this domain have been extraordinary, and I sincerely hope that more people can be properly diagnosed and seek out the help they need.

This coming January 31, with a simple, quick gesture (a tweet, a Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat post, a text…), everyone who uses the keyword # BellLetsTalk will trigger a Bell Canada donation in support of mental health. Thanks to this project, over 86.5 million dollars have been donated to fund mental health initiatives. And 740,145 people have had access to mental health services, including 492,000 children and young people.

Talk is Action!

However, beyond money, services and research, the truly amazing strength of this program lies elsewhere: in the extraordinary public conversation taking place between millions of people, an open dialogue on mental health that fights against stigmatization.
Little by little, the taboos surrounding mental illness are falling. More and more, we treat it as a serious issue, like any other illness. More and more, people feel empowered to open up and speak up.

That is why I support #BellLetsTalk

And if you want to do so as well, this is the time! Feel free to get involved, talk, listen and share... for a good cause!”

Jacques-André Dupont, CEO

The composer's new album is a feast for the ears that is companionable, symphonically expansive, danceable and (as its title suggests) ripe with melodies.

In October, one of the most influential composers of his generation, virtuoso Max Richter will be in Montreal. Accompanied by the excellent American Contemporary Music Ensemble, he will perform two of his recent works: the soundtrack to TV series The Leftovers and the music of the ballet Infra by Wayne McGregor. Amazing.
