The Orchestra will give a recorded concert at the Maison symphonique for broadcast this week

Montreal, June 1, 2020 — The Orchestre symphonique de Montréal is pleased to announce that its musicians have started a much awaited return today to the Maison symphonique for a reduced ensemble concert to be broadcast on June 4. This was made possible after the Minister of Culture and Communications Nathalie Roy announced on May 22, the green light to recorded indoor performances and concerts without a live audience.

During the pandemic, the Orchestra has multiplied online initiatives in order to maintain a close contact with its loyal public. We have thus reached over a million people!

The OSM’s Chief Executive Officer Madeleine Careau was on location today, delighted to exchange greetings with the musicians as they entered their home venue:

It is so gratifying to finally return to the Maison symphonique, which we have sorely missed. This reunion will give our loyal audiences the long-awaited opportunity to enjoy the musicians playing together in two works selected for the occasion.
Also, the OSM welcomes Minister Nathalie Roy’s announcement today and looks forward to more details in regards to the deconfinement of concert halls.

ANDREW WAN, OSM CONCERTMASTER AND MADELEINE CAREAU, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, MONDAY MORNING.

COMPLIANCE WITH SANITATION MEASURES
The health and safety of OSM stage personnel and musicians are an absolute priority for the Orchestra. Their return to the Maison symphonique will occur under strict sanitary conditions in accordance with Public Health guidelines. A health protocol for the Maison symphonique has been drawn up in collaboration with the venue’s resident staff and administration, the OSM and Place des Arts.
