As part of the Orchestre Métropolitain’s 40th anniversary, this event will start with a discussion between Yannick Nézet-Séguin, artistic director and principal conductor of the OM for 22 years, and music lover and radio host Mario F. Paquet. They will talk about the conductor's artistic vision, values, and future plans. The internationally renowned dancer and choreographer Rhodnie Désir will also take part.
Following the discussion, the OM’s wind quintet will perform a fun and varied program that showcases the beautiful and complementary sounds of flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet and French horn. It’s sure to be an occasion full of incredible and fascinating musical discovery!
