This year, Pointe-à-Callière’s Port Symphonies are taking us on a musical journey back to the days of Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville, the famous 17th century privateer from Montréal. This is the theme that Montréal violinist and composer Guido Del Fabbro explores in his original composition, A Privateer on the River. Pierre Le Moyne d’Iberville is also the central figure in Pointe-à-Callière’s new permanent exhibition for families, Pirates or Privateers? For this unique outdoor concert, trains, boats moored in the Old Port, and other urban instruments will sound out together to create an original piece of contemporary music of the most unusual kind.
Families looking for ways to keep busy during school break are invited to Pointe-à-Callière where the new discovery-exhibition Pirates or Privateers? delivers a captivating tale of adventure! In addition to this not-to-be-missed outing, other special history- and archaeology-related activities will be taking place from Saturday, March 1st to the following Sunday, March 9.
The Pointe-à-Callière Foundation is proud to announce an exceptional $1 million contribution by the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation to its very first major fundraising campaign.
