Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Youth and Creativity: From Mozart to the OSM Competition — scheduled on January 16, 2022 — has been postponed until May 12, 2022. Ticket holders are asked keep their ticket(s), which will be honoured at the venue entrance.
This concert is sure to stimulate the imagination through performances of real musical tableaux. After the creative genius of Mozart embodied in his Symphony no. 29, mezzo-soprano Rose Naggar-Tremblay, winner of the 2021 OSM Competition, will perform excerpts from Elgar's cycle Sea Pictures, set to texts by various British poets depicting the sea, its ports, ships, and swimmers, as well as the manifold colours of English Romanticism. To conclude, some twenty music students from the Side-By-Side program will join the musicians of the Orchestra in Mussorgsky's magnificently evocative Pictures at an Exhibition, a symphonic promenade orchestrated by Maurice Ravel.
Mozart, Symphonie no. 29 in A major, K. 201 (29 min.)
