Dittos to all who have previously raved about the symphony at Christmas. We, too, were lucky to get seats for what was a wonderful performance in a spectacular venue. I would go back for this symphony any time at almost any price.

What a treat to listen to the OSM in the Maison symphonique. I cannot think of a better place to enjoy Christmas music with a conductor of the calibre of Kent Nagano.

Saw a great performance of Bach and Mendelssohn with a pre concert organ recital. Musicians were great and the evening was very special.

Ken is truly a Maestro of World Class Caliber. If you come to Montreal and the Orchestra plays as good as the one in Vienna, you realize that Ken is doing a great job!

The MSO (for the anglos) is a Montreal tradition. It's an excellent symphony and every year my Mom and I get season passes (to that and the Grande Ballet). Orchestras are not for everyone but if you're going to see one I suggest the MSO...

Saw the Christmas Show. Excellent performance. It was sold out but we were able to get two last-minute cancellations. Well worth it!

What to say more then amazing place amazing acoustic and almost always great program. If I would start naming every wonderful moment I had there that would take looong very long time. I will just mention that I adore Mr Yannic Nezet and his orchestra, that I am very often there enjoying music and his passion. Latest concerto with Scandinavian... More

I personally didn't see any noticeable difference between Montrel's Orchestra and any other one considered to be more upscale.

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.
