New Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal concert hall.

 A while ago I was invited to the new Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal concert hall, on behalf of MSO. They intended this concert to showcase and preview the material that they will play for students in High School and Elementary.

The played Peter and the Wolf by Prokofiev, and Carnival des Animaux by Camille St Saens. I don't partciularly like Prokofiev, but it was nice to hear the parts of Carnival. I was wishing that they were did more meaty material, but of course, the concert was meant to showcase music they'd play for young students.

A conductor friend of mine, Debi, took some pictures of the new concert hall. Here are two of them.

The Orchestre wasn't full.

Can't wait to hear how it sounds.
