This special edition of the Bal de l’OSM, a grandiose concert will open the evening while guests will experience a true immersion in the unique and singular world of Maestro Rafael Payare. Guests have the opportunity of attending the inaugural concert of the OSM’s 2022–2023 season conducted by the new Music Director.

Diners will be immersed in an enchanting atmosphere in which the unusual is rendered with finesse and delicacy. A true ode to the personality and artistry of the Maestro.
