Pointe-Claire welcomes Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestre Métropolitain performing Fantastic BRUCKNER

Grand Concerts

The Mayor of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is proud to announce that the City will be hosting an exceptional concert by the Orchestre Métropolitain (OM) conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin at 8 p.m. on Friday, September 8 at Saint-Joachim Church.

The event, presented in partnership with the Conseil des arts de Montréal, will feature the OM performing the Symphony No.5 by Bruckner. Cast in a somber mood that carries us deep into the composer’s disillusioned spirit, this symphony with multiple nicknames is the final recording in the OM’s Bruckner cycle. Some call it the “Tragic,” others see it as an embodiment of Christian faith. But for Bruckner, it was his “Fantastic” symphony, the work that finally revealed Bach’s genius.

Composed of some sixty musicians, the OM will reach out to the public with an extraordinary, and fully accessible symphonic experience.

Tickets are on sale now at the Stewart Hall Cultural Centre, 176 Du Bord-du-Lac–Lakeshore (514-630-1220). They can also be ordered using the order form on page 21 of the Culture Pointe-Claire guide, available in municipal service buildings.

The concert starts at 8 p.m.; doors open around 7:30 p.m..

“Everyone is invited to come out and discover or rediscover this masterpiece thanks to the Orchestre Métropolitain and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. It’s a great way to kick off the fall season,” said Mayor Trudeau.
