We went to an OSM performance last year and it was great. We are big music lovers, so we really enjoyed it, but I could tell that some people in the audience did not feel the same way (I guess their music preference was more hip-hop haha!).
Like other musical venues, it really depends on your preference. If you're considering the OSM, make sure you research the performance and make sure it suits your tastes.

This is now reckoned to be Canada's best orchestra, particularly with the world-renowned Kent Nagano conducting. He knows precisely how to handle the really grand symphonies (Mahler, Beethoven) with style, panache and humour - why, he even talks to the audience!

Visited recently for a concert; beautiful new hall with excellent sound quality; better than their old venue (Place des Arts). More intimate ambiance. A must see! OSM is one of the best orchestras in the world!

The OSM is well known all over the world either by his former Chef Dutoit or the actual Nagamo
The new music hall is so GREAT it has to be seen and enjoyed for the GREAT sound

I heard Dvorak's New World Symphony by OSM, it was a very nice performance in a beautiful hall. One of the coolest organs I've seen. The orchestra was good, world class, but probably not the best I've heard.
