BENEFIT EVENT: Magical Symphony

Magical Symphony

Benefit event

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Whoever said that the worlds of magic tricks and classical music don’t go together?

To celebrate the 8th Bal des enfants event with a bang, this year the OSM is joining forces with magician Daniel Coutu to give a live presentation of the greatest magic trick ever performed during a concert: to make all the musicians of the orchestra disappear with a single wave of the baton! Chances are our friend will stumble upon a few decoys!

Whit each family pass (web link) you will receive:

  • Online access to this concert-show specially designed for young audiences, 5 to 12 years old. Concert webcast live on April 25 with virtual interaction with the audience
  • Available to review on April 26 to April 28 inclusively.
  • A preparation for concert and virtual activities before the event
  • A magic prop for children
  • A partial tax receipt
