Conference – The Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique : from the genesis to the inaugural concert.
The realization of the OSM’s Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique was a great adventure from all points of view. In close collaboration with the OSM management, as well as with a team of consultants, architects and engineers, the artisans of Casavant Frères devoted thousands of hours to the design, construction, installation and the harmonization of this exceptional instrument.
This interactive conference will retrace the complex process of carrying out the project, from initial discussions with the creative team to the inauguration of the organ in 2014.
