Free outdoor concert. It's the perfect opportunity to enjoy a free performance by this renowned Montreal institution in a larger than life setting.

Under the direction of Kent Nagano, a massed chorus and orchestra joined by four soloists including Leslie Ann Bradley and Mario Bahg will launch the eighth edition of the Classical Spree with a performance of Verdi’s Requiem.

A great master of the opera, Verdi gave this work a truly theatrical dimension: profound vocal lyricism, powerful choral and orchestral forces and the famous Dies Irae with its striking effect. Join the OSM and more than 300 choristers at the Olympic Park to experience this special, highly charged and powerfully emotional moment.

Artists:

  • Kent Nagano, conductor
  • Andrew Megill, chorus master
  • With soprano Leslie Ann Bradley and tenor Mario Bahg, among others
  • The OSM Chorus
