The orchestra’s DNA is imprinted with a love of music and an unstoppable desire to share it with as many people as possible. To cap off the OM’s 40th anniversary celebrations, this three-part web documentary series directed by Jean-Nicolas Orhon highlights the incredible efforts and determination that have been central to the orchestra’s success.
About the director :
In addition to this three-part series, Jean-Nicolas Orhon of Les Films JAD directed Ensemble, the first documentary taking audience members behind the scenes of the Orchestre Métropolitain. Ensemble followed the orchestra for an entire year while it prepared for its first tour of the most prestigious European concert halls. In his newest series of films, Orhon tells the inspiring back story of the Orchestra’s tenuous early days, paying tribute to the pioneers and founding members—without them, the OM wouldn’t be the cultural force it is today.
