Eroica ! A tribute to
our Health Care heroes
The OCM welcomes 200 health care workers to the Maison symphonique
May 23, 2022
The Orchestre classique de Montréal (OCM) will conclude its 82nd season with a tribute to health care workers, conducted by Jacques Lacombe, on Friday May 27, 2022 at 8 pm at the Maison symphonique. In this addition to the company’s regular programming, several Canadian opera stars and the talented pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre will accompany the OCM in an all-Beethoven programme.
Thanks to the generous support of the evening’s sponsor, Medicom, the OCM will invite 200 health care workers from the Centre hospitalier de l’Univesité de Montréal (CHUM) and the Jewish General Hospital (JGH) to the concert free of charge and will pay tribute to them.
“It is with great emotion that we are organising this last concert of the season to highlight the real heroes of our society who have been working tirelessly and taking care of us for more than two years!” says Taras Kulish, General Director of the OCM.
This concert will also be an opportunity to hear several musicians selected through the Canimex Mentorship Program, supported by the Canimex Group and RBC Foundation. The thirteen students from the Faculty of Music of the Université de Montréal will join the orchestra for this great concert.
