The OSM Classical Spree will finish in style with no fewer than five Alliance chorale du Québec ensembles! The assembled choirs will perform a wide range of choral music, as well as a song by the great Gilles Vigneault. Finally, all five groups will come together to perform Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” under Maestro Nagano – a fitting conclusion for a joyful gathering.
