Introduction

Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal depart on their first international European tour with artistic director and principle conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Two programmes will be performed during the tour, and besides showcasing the Orchestra’s talent, the programmes will each include a work by a Québécois composer and, in a nod to their roots, works by French and English composers.
