For Nuit blanche à Montréal 2019, McGill University’s Visual Arts Collection is joining forces with the Schulich School of Music and the Beatty Memorial Lecture Series to offer Alive at Night: Art, Music, and History at McGill. This one-of-a-kind event joins art, architecture, history, and live music, to create an immersive experience.

Enjoy free flashlight tours of the art and architecture in Redpath Hall, a renowned 19th century building, and one of the oldest at McGill. Animated by a multimedia presentation, and followed by a live, multi-instrumental musical performance, these flashlight tours promise to bring the past, present, and future of McGill to life.

Each tour and performance accommodates 30 visitors and will last approximately 1 hour. The tours are free, but registration is required. Choose from one of four tours and performances (in English or French) throughout the night.

*This event is separate from and not to be confused with the event at the Redpath Museum during Nuit Blanche 2019.
