CAMMAC - Montreal offers many activities for amateur musicians,

within a radius of 100km around Montreal.


We ended a great season with a sight reading (always popular) and a performance of the Symphony Orchestra. The committee has prepared a varied program for next season which begins in September with the first reading for the season. Waiting to see our regulars and welcome newcomers, we wish everyone a great summer full of music - perhaps CAMMAC Music Centre?

To make our region more active, we welcome your ideas and suggestions. We need contact information to organize one-day workshops such as: folk, jazz, strings, winds, orchestra etc ... You can communicate at any time with one of the members of the committee.
