Now, you may be wondering when and how the brilliant idea of holding the event came from; for starters, the Bach festival of Montreal began in the year 2005 with great performances from music legends such as Musica Antiqua, Frieder Bernius and Klaus Mertens. The primary goal of organizing the event was to celebrate the times of the legendary Bach Composer. Additionally, the event was to be held annually while featuring performances from some of the best music artists from Canada and other parts of the world.

Montreal Canadians have always attended the event faithfully since its inception; the high attendance has reinstated the standing of Montreal, Canada as a cultural metropolis which appreciates both baroque and classical music; the high attendance of the prior years can truly attest to this fact.
