Concerts aux Îles du Bic brings together professional and emerging artists for unique concerts. The musicians, gathered in ephemeral chamber music ensembles, perform famous or unpublished works in the enchanting setting of the Bic Islands.
The meeting of talented performers, combined with the splendor of the place and the proximity to nature, make Concerts aux Îles du Bic stand out among the chamber music festivals in Quebec.
For the 20th in 2021, the anniversary program was placed under the sign of reunion. The festival presents five major concerts from August 7 to 15. In addition, around fifteen non-festival activities will be held from July to culminate in the week preceding the festival. Nextgen musicians animate several public places during the summer.
You can be assured that special care has been taken in welcoming spectators and that strict security measures are applied. We will, of course, respect all public health standards.
As the only chamber music festival in Eastern Quebec, the event has won numerous awards.
