The Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal is pleased to announce an upcoming tour in the United States with its Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Chicago ⇢ Ann Arbor ⇢ New York ⇢ Philadelphia

This tour give the Montreal conductor a first opportunity to present his Quebec orchestra to audiences of the cities of the United States. Also joining the Orchestre on the tour will be one of the world’s most acclaimed vocal artists, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato.

The famous American singer will perform two pieces by Mozart, accompanied by the Orchestre. The OM will also perform the Symphony No. 4 by Bruckner, the composer largely responsible for introducing the Orchestre’s unique sound to audiences outside Canada.

“I am overjoyed for my OM musicians, who will discover magnificent venues and audiences that have become adoptive families for me in Ann Arbor and Chicago and especially in New York and Philadelphia, where I have been based for several years. And to my even greater joy, we will be sharing the stage with my good friend Joyce DiDonato, an artist I adore and for whom I have the greatest admiration.”

Yannick Nézet-Séguin
Artistic Director and Principal Conductor

“We can already predict that 2019 will be a banner year for the OM, for the development of its musicians and for the recognition of Quebec talent. This tour will yet again add to Montreal’s lustre.
