The OM for Schools

 

Every season, the OM enhances the educational experience of over 11,000 young people in Montréal-area elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities. The Orchestre has developed many educational partnerships over more than 10 years, which have led to the creation of turnkey resources and unique initiatives. By getting involved as musicians, soloists, composers or choristers, they have provided young people with countless diverse musical experiences.
