Back home to the Maison symphonique

Music can once again be heard at the Maison symphonique! A group of OSM musicians took to the stage this Monday and yesterday for a closed-door rehearsal, a first step in the gradual resumption of our in-hall activities. The fruit of their work was filmed today, still with no public present.

 

As of 7pm tomorrow, we invite you to hear two works performed by 26 of our remarkable musicians:

The Divertimento no. 1 in D major, K. 136, for string ensemble by Mozart (15’), and;
The Serenade in D minor, op. 44, for wind ensemble, cello and double bass by Dvorak (25’)
