Montreal MetroOctobass

Measuring over 12 feet, the octobass is the largest and the deepest of stringed instruments. The OSM is the only orchestra in the world to have the privilege to include this rare instrument in its ranks.

Attend this concert to hear the sound of this magnificent instrument.

The Octobass was generously loaned by patrons Huguette and Roger Dubois of Canimex.
