Four renowned titular organists from Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral are the OSM’s guests for an exceptional concert at the Maison symphonique in which the Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique will resound, along with chant and percussion. These guardians of a millennial tradition will unveil the Vieille Dame’s secrets, from improvised liturgy to post-revolutionary compositions. Spirituality, elevation and emotion are hallmarks of this concert showcasing the Grand Orgue.

From January 20 to 23, when the organists of Notre-Dame de Paris are present in Montreal, the OSM will offer masterclasses open to the public as well as private lessons for local organ students. Rounding off the event, exhibitions and lectures will punctuate this celebration of the King of Instruments. Details are forthcoming.
