Le Vent du Nord: A North Wind Blows through the OSM 2024-2025

Blending the magic of The Nutcracker and the liveliness of Quebec folk tunes, an exciting concert awaits you as the OSM and Kent Nagano band together with the Le Vent du Nord.

From the fairy-tale world of The Nutcracker to toe-tapping Quebec folk music, you’re invited to a rousing concert given by the OSM and Le Vent du Nord. This folk group will perform their own music as well as orchestral versions of traditional songs, and reels, jigs, and other lively tunes will swing alongside Tchaikovsky’s scintillating music.
