Took the older children to see Leonard Berstein's A Quiet Place - a challenging introduction but they enjoyed it

Experienced classical music fans know that for all the perfection of recordings, with their opportunities for retakes and freedom from audience noise, nothing compares to the visceral engagement of attending a live performance. Visitors to Montreal who love classical music should not dream of missing the OSM. Since my previous TA review 2 years ago, I have attended around a... More

World class orchestra in a world class venue, the Place des Arts is a fantastic sight in its own, especially the large hall which the OSM plays in. I had a wonderful time seeing two different concerts here. Dress nicely, and don't make any noises. I promise you will have an enjoyable evening.

Last few times that I went to their concert were a total deception. Maestro Negano does not seem to take his job seriously enough. The orchestra has a narrow repertory and every year, they repeat same pieces such as Tchaikovsky's first piano concerto or Beethoven's Emperor. When a more complicated or less famous piece is played, it is played with... More

Attended the last night of the Francofolies in which the orchestra played outdoors with several famous Quebecoise singers. People were well-behaved, show was great.
