Surprise Concert for Victims of the Recent Montreal Flooding

The Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal has unveiled plans to hold a free of charge concert following the recent floods in Montréal in early May. After witnessing first-hand the conditions, OSM Musical Director Kent Nagano was inspired to do something for all Montrealers affected by the unprecedented spring flooding:

“At a time of crisis like this, friends and neighbours feel the need to contribute by any means possible. It’s often under difficult circumstances that communities pool their efforts in a way that’s unique and inspiring. As musicians, we can’t rebuild homes, but we do hope this small gesture of solidarity and friendship towards Montrealers will contribute to the spirit of cooperation following the floods this spring,” Kent Nagano, Music Director

Denis Coderre, the Mayor of Montreal has also praised the initiative and reiterated that ‘’this small gesture demonstrates a spirit of solidarity with fellow Montrealers, and it makes me prouder than ever of our city.’’

The concert for victims will take place at the Pierrefonds-Roxboro City Hall on 29th June at 7:30 p.m. For further information about the event, please click here
