Latest news, from the Montreal Gazette and La Presse:
I will be blogging about the MSO and its "former" home on Sept 21. Suffice it to say that the former hall was a "Festival" hall, meant to host many types of events, and not specifically designed for symphony concerts. This new hall has been in the works, off and on, for over 30 years, and three is great anticipation for patrons of both Nagano's Montreal Symphony and Nezet-Seguin's Orchestre Metropolitain which will share the venue.
Montreal, after Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto (with two of them!) will finally have a world-class, acoustically superior, concert hall. It's about time!
