NEW CANADIAN AND QUÉBEC WORKS COMMISSIONED BY THE OSM

All season long, the OSM contributes to promoting Canadian and Québec creators by encouraging the composition of new works.

 

In a work commissioned by the OSM, Matthew Ricketts focuses on the hard work of the many immigrants who built the Canadian Pacific railway and thus contributed to the development of our country.  Nicole Lizée collaborates with the Algonquin-Québécois rapper Samian in a world premiere. Lastly, three concertmasters from three major Canadian orchestras join forces in the Québec creation by Chinese-Canadian composer Alexina Louie, which showcases the prodigious performances of these violinists.
