The OSM Opening Night

Benefit Event

Maison symphonique de Montréal

September 14, 2021

Time: 7 p.m.

The OSM’s grand opening night takes on a very special character this year. To begin with, the event is a golden opportunity for many to hear the OSM again at the Maison symphonique after long months of confinement. But most of all, it will be Maestro Rafael Payare’s first season-opening concert as the new OSM’s Music Director. Please come to welcome him and take part in this historic moment with us!

In addition to the privilege of attending the opening concert, guests will enjoy a seated cabaret-style meal (tables of 6) after the performance. On this occasion, Maestro Payare will take part in an interview in which he will share his artistic vision. Exclusive content will be shared with guests before, during and after the event.

Please hurry! Places are limited.

Health and Safety First

The OSM considers your health and safety as its top priority. In addition to the sanitary measures already in place for the concert hall and for moving around the Maison symphonique, the same safety concerns apply to both the Orchestra’s Opening Night and dining event following the concert.

The following measures will be implemented to ensure a safe event:

Waiting period in-hall after the concert to let other spectators exit the premises.

Gradual exiting of the hall and relocation to your table in compliance with applicable physical distancing measures.

Wearing a surgical mask (procedure mask) is mandatory when relocating to your table. Your mask may be removed only after you are seated at your table.

Six (6) people per table from a maximum of 3 different households. All tables are distanced (2 m) following Public Health directives. A maximum of 142 guests will be seated for the dining event in the foyer Allegro.

Every effort will be made to ensure that circulation is kept to a strict minimum before, during and after dinner. No standing-up gatherings will be permitted.

Meal courses are served by our service staff who abide by the regulations in effect for catering, and portions are individual.

If you have any further questions or concerns about the safety of this event, do not hesitate to contact us. [email protected] 514 840-7425.
