The OSM’s Classical Flight



YUL Montreal-Trudeau International Airport

5 juin 2021

Time: 7 p.m.

After its huge success and the interest generated by the OSM Classical Flight benefit concert in August 2020, the OSM repeats the exploit with a second edition in 2021 in complete safety in the comfort of your vehicle. Entertainment, reconnecting with the arts and enjoying a collective experience are more important than ever after a long period of confinement*.

A stunning meeting of two worlds

Though they work in very different fields, conductor Dina Gilbert and freestyle skier Mikaël Kingsbury both have mountains to tackle with rigour, discipline, concentration, passion and self-confidence. Dina and Mikaël each share a bit of their lives in this entertaining and memorable evening of works by Mozart, Brahms, Kodály and Dvořák. The spectacular musical event When Music Hits the Sky propels us to the universe of two gifted athletes in the OSM’s company.

Hurry, places are limited to 400 vehicles.

  • entertainment and prizes onsite before the concert
  • Food truck Baluchon Café pâtisserie
  • stage is visible from all parking locations
  • giant screens guarantee your unobstructed view of the stage
  • best sound quality assured by FM broadcasting (tune in directly from your car radio)

Our promise: an unforgettable experience where music hits the sky!
