L’ESPACE OSM

ANOTHER WAY TO DISCOVER THE OSM

A FREE VENUE, OPEN TO ALL

Adjoining the Maison symphonique, the Espace OSM furthers the OSM’s mission to create, educate, and entertain. This entirely free venue presents the OSM’s rich history while embodying the spirit of a vibrant, modern, and forward-looking Orchestra. The Espace OSM’s varied events and installations provide a unique opportunity to experience the Orchestra beyond the concert hall.

 

Visitors can learn more about the Orchestra and classical music by exploring the exciting interactive and digital projects showcased at the Espace OSM. Throughout the season, talks with OSM musicians and guest speakers invite both seasoned music lovers and new enthusiasts to deepen their knowledge of repertoire performed in the concert hall.

 

A wall dedicated to the OSM’s history traces the Orchestra’s journey through the decades, with additional media available on tablets. Beginning November 9, 2022, a temporary exhibition will highlight the OSM’s longstanding initiatives to celebrate and serve the Orchestra’s diverse communities.

 

The Espace OSM also features news about upcoming concerts and exclusive features on the Orchestra’s musicians. Its Listening Zone offers a space to relax while listening to OSM-curated Spotify playlists.
