Production Faculté de musique de l’Université de Montréal

Three centuries of music in two hours flat! The Orchestre de l’Université de Montréal (OUM) offers up an aural journey through several centuries of musical creativity. From a majestic Schubert symphony to the noble and mysterious work of Messiaen, by way of Ana Sokolović’s visual-art-inspired contemporary music, let your ears be touched and nourished by the hands of maestro Jean-Francois Rivest and the musicians of OUM.

Programme

Founded in 1993, the Orchestre de l’Université de Montréal stands out for the talent, energy, and professionalism of the 80 music faculty students that form its ranks each year.

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
