Honour Circle

Following the recent announcement by the Government of Quebec, the OSM is obliged to restrict public access to its concerts scheduled for October. Reaching out to listeners is more important than ever! Help us to continue our mission by donating.



Generous donation from the Honour Circle Members allow us to pursue concrete and innovative initiatives, to make music resound at the very heart of the community with the peacefulness and joy that it brings !

Your donations allow us to share music with as many people as possible, to support the next generation of professional musicians and to offer high-quality educational programming while maintaining the Orchestra’s tradition of excellence. Be it through digital platforms to present archival recordings of our best concerts or new performances, the production of educational broadcasting on social media, or the creation of pedagogical material for young people, we are grateful to you for helping us make classical music more accessible.

Thank you for donating to the OSM. Your gift today will support us in our quest to bring music to the heart of the community !
