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

The new concert hall is a wonderful place to hear this magnificent orchestra. This is the second year we subscribe to the Sunday afternoon concert series. The series runs from September to May and is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The staff is extremely accommodating if you need to change one of your tickets for another date... More

The OSM is a popular attraction in the city. And the audience is much younger than you might imagine. So much for classical music dying. Tickets for the ODM are both pricey, and hard to come by. Most concerts are sold out. The new concert hall is taking some getting used to. The acoustics are quite incredible. The clarity is... More

The sound, the seating, the music... great escape. It is easy to get there, parking also. If you like concerts, go experience the exceptional sound.

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.
