preconcert activities

Over the course of the entire season the OSM offers a series of activities before and after selected concerts: the Grand Preconcert Talks offer the opportunity to discover conductors, composers, performers and musicologists, whose passion is to communicate the rich stories behind musical works as a way of deepening our appreciation. The recitals are your opportunity to enjoy chamber repertoire at the Maison symphonique and to discover a great variety of artists, from emerging Canadians to international masters. These activities shed a fresh light on our concerts and attest to the values of education, accessibility and sharing essential to the DNA of the OSM.
