The OSM and Swing: a “Concert Éclaté”

The OSM and Swing:
a "Concert Éclaté"

Maison symphonique de Montréal

The OSM invites you to a concert at the Maison symphonique that is simply out of the ordinary, featuring Pierre Lapointe and Catherine Major, with Maestro Nagano conducting! Inspired by the Cabaret years, responding to the censorship of the interwar period, this true whirlwind of music, songs and dance will immerse you in the world of Kurt Weill. To complete the evening, everyone is invited to let loose on the dance floor to the sounds of swing. Come all dressed up in period attire for the occasion!
