The entreacte was only after 15 minutes and then we were stuck for over 1 and a half hours until we could get a break. Simply put,... More

Great opportunity to see the free open air concert given by OSM! We go to see their regular shows too, but the one where you can sit on your blanket and stare at the sky while listening to the best music ever is pure joy!

I have attended many concerts at the OSM, usually from the front row of the balcony which gives a good sound /price combination and is full of music enthusiasts. The sound in the new hall which is now 2 years old is very good, and I can hear the individual instruments. Their repetoire is very varied and there should be... More

Especially now the the Montreal Symphonic orchestra has its new hall for concert, a piece of art in itself. One of the top symphonic orchestra in the world.

A very good orchestra with interesting programs of music. The new concert hall in Place des Arts is worth a visit.

This is definitely one of the most impressive concert halls I've been too. The concert was very good and the acoustics were astounding. While not sitting very close, everything was loud enough and "punchy", and so I felt up close.

I've been to a POP concert combine with OSM. Wonderful experience! The sound was amazing, the spacious room is really nice, but I do not recommand the seats behind the scene. You get to see the back of the musicians all long... Plus, the seats at the parterre are way too low to get a nice view when you,re seated... More
