Whether at the Maison symphonique or other stages across Montréal, the OM is reaching out to the community in a special way: by inviting amateur musicians to play with them and share the joy of performing some of the most beautiful pieces in the repertoire.
Through this initiative, the OM hopes to support the next generation of musicians while encouraging amateur artistic practice and civic participation in the city’s cultural sphere!
Tutti is a unique event inspired by the Philadelphia Orchestra’s PlayIn initiative. This event is presented in partnership with Place des Arts.
Upcoming Tutti: September 30, 2023 (free)
On Saturday, September 30, 10:30 a.m., the Orchestre Métropolitain will hold a new Tutti as part of the Journées de la culture 2023. For the occasion, strings are in the spotlight!
The Orchestre Métropolitain invites amateur performers of all ages to join its musicians for a rehearsal to form a large string orchestra. This ensemble, made up of 100 musicians will come together to perform works from the string orchestra repertoire, under the direction of conductor Benoit Gauthier, a member of the OM’s Orchestral Conducting Academy.
This is an exceptional opportunity to share the Maison symphonique stage with professional, passionate and experienced musicians. Music lovers will also be able to discover the talent of young flutist Cyrille Angers, winner of a Prix Étoiles Stingray at the 2023 OMNI Competition.
