We at Power Corporation are proud of our association with the Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal, which brings joy and happiness to Montréal’s music lovers and those around the world since its inception in 1981. The orchestra’s mission is to promote the music of the symphony and make it an integral part of the local community. His Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, has developed strong relationships with his musicians, trained in Québec, and was instrumental in forging strong ties with the local Montréal community.

Each year, the orchestra performs some 50 concerts in its home venue, the Maison symphonique de Montréal. It also performs 20 concerts in a dozen of the city’s boroughs, attended by more than 10,000 persons. Furthermore, during the summer season, 10 concerts are presented, several of which are performed outdoors free of charge.

The orchestra also partners with a number of educational institutions in Montréal to develop specialized musical programs to motivate young people to explore their creative abilities. Approximately 11,000 Montréal area students at every level benefited from these educational activities and projects.

We, at Power Corporation, are proud of our association with the Orchestre Métropolitain. We take delight in their artistic leadership and their vital contribution to the vibrancy of the musical scene in Montréal and beyond.
