Take a seat in the musical arena of the Maison symphonique to watch a symphonic tournament of epic proportions!

At the centre, conductor Adam Johnson will give the final instructions for a melodic offensive that will leave you on the edge of your seat. On one side, you’ll see our oboist warming up for a shot at a remarkably athletic passage. Meanwhile, our string section will be drilling its precision, discipline, and speed, for a chance to win top honours! Together, they will take you on a discovery of the the bonds that unite music and sports.

The baton is raised, and the musical match is set to beginOn your marks, get set, play!
