The return of autumn is in full swing at the GesÃ¹. Itâ€™s hot but very colourful.
Celebrating Montrealâ€™s Churches
On Sept. 7, the GesÃ¹ was the site of the kick-off for the very first JournÃ©es des Ã‰glises montrÃ©alaises. A joint venture of the organization Passerelles and the QuÃ©bec Council for Religious Patrimony, these days gave tourists and MontrÃ©al citizens alike the opportunity to discover or rediscover 27 exceptional churches in the metropolitan area, including of course the brilliant jewel that is the GesÃ¹.
Red Bull Music Festival MontrÃ©al
On Sept. 19, the GesÃ¹ was humming with the rhythms of classical sounds and experimental creations by a trio â€œof Canadian experimental artists who push the boundaries: Kara-Lis Coverdale, Alex Zhang Hungtai and Sarah Davchiâ€, entitled Triptique. This unusual concert highlighted the GesÃ¹â€™s Casavant/Guilbault-ThÃ©rien organ, inviting music lovers to a unique acoustic and musical experience as part of the Red Bull Music Festival MontrÃ©al.
The event caught the attention of Le Devoir which featured it on its front page on September 19, 2018.
