A WORD FROM MAESTRO

kent-nagano-viree-classique

As the OSM presents its sixth edition of the Classical Spree, we are proud to take our place in the great tradition of Montreal summer festivals. And this summer is a special one: we celebrate an event 50 years ago that helped establish the city of Montreal on the international stage.
That event was Expo ’67, which played host to the World Festival of Entertainment, Montreal’s first and largest arts festival, bringing great musicians and ensembles from all over the world to the Montreal public, awakening young and old to the importance, relevance, and beauty of classical and world music. The OSM inaugurated that festival with the “Ode to Joy”
from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, carrying a message of freedom and equality that rings as clearly today as it did back then.

And 50 years later, in the complex and rapidly changing world of 2017, we close our Classical Spree with another performance of this same work, featuring massed choirs from diff erent parts of Quebec and accompanied at the Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique.

This collective humanitarian statement refl ects an essential and shared universal understanding across time.

Generation upon generation of newcomers arrived in Montreal from foreign shores, prompted by the need to establish new homes and nurture new communities. Music, art, and culture have always lent cohesion to our diversity and inspired a common set of values in the context of our diff ering lives. That is the heart and soul, the real social meaning of our festival.

What better way to honour music’s unifying merits than to celebrate the landmark of Expo‘67?

The OSM and I invite you to join us for a very special encounter to celebrate Montreal’s culture and music, and the vitality, joy, energy, and inspiration they bring to us all.
