The start of the OSM’s 2020–2021 season was marked by the unveiling of webcast concerts, enabling online spectators to see and hear the excellence and artistry of our local musicians. The programming from October to January continues in this same spirit, with a new series of 6 concerts featuring highly evocative works that summon other art forms such as poetry (Chausson’s Poème de l’amour et de la mer, R. Strauss’ Vier letzte Lieder) and dance (Stravinsky’s The Firebird).
Under the direction of conductors Bernard Labadie, Jacques Lacombe, Alexander Shelley and Jean-Marie Zeitouni, the OSM musicians will make the Maison symphonique resound with works by Ravel, Stravinsky, Strauss and Wagner. This programming will be heightened by the presence of exceptional Canadian artists: soprano Adrianne Pieczonka, pianist Angela Hewitt, OSM Concertmaster Andrew Wan, as well as OSM Artists-in-Residence Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Ana Sokolović.
Accessible online concerts and flexible viewing
This series of 6 concerts specially designed for state-of-the-art online viewing experience will be interspersed with exclusive content. To enable viewers to learn more about the works performed and about the historical context of the repertoire, interviews with specialists, conductors, soloists and even musicologists will serve to enrich the webcasts.

Her deep and luminous voice and velvet timbre are hallmarks of contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux’s triumph on the greatest European and North American stages. From Baroque to 20th-century music, this talented Quebec artists for whom “singing must be an expression of joy” commands every repertoire. A generous performer, she has the gift of touching her listeners with even the subtlest emotions.
Montrealer by adoption, Serbian-born composer Ana Sokolović is an influential figure in contemporary music. She is the recipient of many prestigious awards, and the Société de musique contemporaine (SMCQ) paid tribute to her in their “Hommage” series. Her compositions have met with international success in performances by celebrated orchestras and artists. Ana Sokolović’s music conjures vivid soundscapes steeped in Balkan folklore, transporting listeners into a dreamlike “magical world.” Not to be missed!
