Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) partners with the festival to highlight the 50th anniversary of Québec’s first major contemporary music event: The Semaine internationale de musique actuelle (1961). The orchestra will be performing a work written specifically for it (1963-1964) by Pierre Mercure, one of our country’s new muic pioneers. Designed as a suite of variations on a single theme, Lignes et points will be presented alongside two Russian masterpieces. The concert will be conducted by British conductor Sir Andrew Davis.

With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
