Kent Nagano is back in Montreal for 3 concerts

The Maestro is appointed Conductor Emeritus of the OSM

As Music Director of the OSM for 16 years, Maestro Kent Nagano left a profound impression on the Orchestra and the public, owing to his dedication and passion. On February 25, 2021, the OSM will pay him tribute by naming him Conductor Emeritus, a title also conferred on Wilfrid Pelletier and Zubin Mehta!

To commemorate this milestone, the OSM will offer a series of 3 webcast concerts under the direction of Kent Nagano in March and April. To highlight Maestro Nagano’s accomplishments, each of these concerts will reflect a part of his legacy to the Orchestra: works by Beethoven, Mozart and Stravinsky represent the Germanic and Russian repertoires, while the Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique, inaugurated by Kent Nagano in 2014, will figure prominently in a work by Poulenc.

Join the OSM for these 3 concerts in the spirit of celebration!
