Schumann, Fantaisie in C major, op. 17 (approx. 30 min.)

Classical Spree

Classical Spree

The OSM’s Classical Spree is a major celebration of classical music presented by the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal in partnership with Place des Arts. In August of each summer, internationally established masters team up with next-generation artists to interpret the works of composers from yesterday and today.

The festival’s formula aims to be family-friendly and accessible: some thirty concerts and shows, each lasting 45 minutes, are presented at reasonable prices in various halls at Place des Arts, including the Maison symphonique. Plenty of free events are also offered in the public spaces of Place des Arts. Classical Spree was first held in 2012, and more than 200 musicians take part in the event every year.
