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.

So easy to reach the Maison Symphonique - by metro, or car. you can even secure your parking space at reduced rate ahead of time. Beautiful hall, excellent acoustic and as a bonus many restaurants to choose from before performances

Small venue but a great place to see a show, all seats looked good and acoustics were wonderful. Only intermittent shows so check before you leave for Montreal, but if they have a concert it's worth taking in.

I've been back here for the OSM 2014 Asian Tour recently with the appearance of Kent Nagano as the conductor administrator and forgot how beautiful this place was! It's like I'm reliving my childhood from the few orchestral shows I've seen in the past. Everything is neat and sharp looking with modern architectural details from the wood and wide window... More

Don't miss an opportunity to hear this wonderful orchestra if you're in Montreal. The Maison symphonique is a fabulous hall that showcases the orchestra in spectacular fashion. If Kent Nagano is conducting, so much the better, but the players are wonderful in any event.

New concert hall is beautifully appointed with light wood which makes acoustics perfect. The orchestra is skilled and well prepared. It plays all genres with a special happiness. The audience surely enjoys the experience. Nagano is a dynamo and a pleasure to watch. I love the percussion section. A wonderful team. Make the symphony a part of any visit to... More
