More than 80,000 already caught this incredible Montreal concert and this Sunday you can join them
Featuring Rufus Wainwright, Coeur de pirate and 300+ musicians, watch Montreal in Symphony on CBC
More than 80,000 people caught Montréal Symphonique in August when the massive free concert took over the city's parks in celebration of Montreal 375. Maybe you were there, camped at the foot of Mount Royal — but whatever the case, it's time to get ready for an encore. This Sunday, Sept. 17, CBC is airing Montreal in Symphony, a one-hour special of the evening's highlights. Find it on TV and at cbc.ca/watch starting at 9 p.m.
Themed around the idea of the "seasons," the show features more than 300 musicians — a collaboration between pop acts and three of Montreal's top orchestras. Patrick Watson, Coeur de pirate, Elisapie and Wyclef Jean are among the featured artists. And famed Montrealers Rufus and Martha Wainwright appear in several numbers, including a fam jam with the McGarrigles and a duet on Rufus's old hit "April Fools." He also pays tribute to a true Montreal icon, Leonard Cohen, with a cover of "Hallelujah."
