Details

This one-of-a-kind event joins art, architecture, history, and live music, to create an immersive experience. In the spirit of Nuit Blanche’s 2018 theme, “(re)MIX,” McGill University’s Visual Arts Collection is joining forces with the Schulich School of Music to offer tours of the art and architecture in Redpath* Hall, followed by a performance by Schulich members on the Hall’s rare French Classical-style pipe organ. Flashlight in hand, you'll be guided through this unique 19th century building by night, discovering carved creatures and gargoyles, murals, stained glass, portraits, and more, before enjoying live music.

Each tour and performance accommodates 25 visitors and will last approximately 1 hour.


*This event is separate from and not to be confused with the Nuit Blanhce event at the Redpath* Museum.
