Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve
LUTE festival

2nd Edition 2002

We are already beginning to think about the organisation of the 2nd Edition in 2002 of this new festival. We would like to see several lutenists and lecturers participating a few days in several patrimonial venues historically related to Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve. This festival is scheduled the closed week-end to May 18, along with the Montreal Foundation's Festivities.

Your collaboration is welcome.
