The 12th edition of the Montreal Bach Festival - a great success!

Just a few days after the closing concert of the 12th edition, the Montreal Bach Festival is proud to present the key points and attendance numbers for 2018. 

It was an excellent festival this year, with the return of renowned stars like Yo-Yo Ma and Sergei Babayan and the first appearance of rising stars such as Jakub Józef Orliński, Stéphane Tétrault and Mélisande McNabney, as well as the début of the Montreal Bach Festival Orchestra with Julian Prégardien for the opening concert, which attracted and delighted an audience of more than 700.

Including Festival productions and those of its partners, this year, between November 4 and December 7, there were 33 different events presented in 11 venues, with 30 performances.
 
Of the 18,000  tickets up for sale in the different venues, 16,500 were sold, for an impressive seat capacity utilization of 91 %.
 
More than 4,000 people attended the free events.
 
There were more than 20,000 attendees to the 2018 Festival in total. 
 
The big screen live broadcast of the December 7 closing concert was among the highlights for 2018. It was the first time that a Quebec cultural organization sold tickets for a streamed concert to increase the number of paying spectators. Of a total of 1,200 seats,1,000 people attended this event
