Maison Symphonique

If you get a chance check out the organ at Maison Symphonique. The room was specially designed to host this mammoth organ. Quite amazing to see how it is played.

Like Lincoln Centre, there are several theatres and concert halls contained in Place des Arts. It is the home of the world-renowned Montreal Symphony Orchestra (cond. Kent Nagano), which is housed in fabulous new Maison Symphonique (Symphony Hall), which is an architectural and acoustical masterpiece with a warm and inviting ambiance; the magnificent purpose-built concert organ is a sight to...

Montreal's Place des Arts is so accessible by any means of transportation. I've been to a few of the different venues and each is beautiful and well-suited for the concerts that I attended.

Attended video games live show at place des arts. Over the years I have attended many shows here. It is a wonderful venue and has been a Montreal landmark for decades. Located in a central location, with many restaurants, it is a treasure for montrealers and visitors. This was my third video games live show in the past 5 years... More

We just had the opportunity to catch The Allan Parsons Project in concert in the Pelletier room and were quite impressed. It's a mid-size concert hall (about 3000 capacity) and not a bad seat in the house I would say. My hubby said the sound was amazing, not sure if that's kudos to the band or the venue or a... More

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theaters, and exhibition centers are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
