Maison symphonique de Montréal presents

Magical Symphony

Whoever said that the worlds of magic tricks and classical music don’t go together?

To celebrate the 8th Bal des enfants event with a bang, this year the OSM is joining forces with magician Daniel Coutu to give a live presentation of the greatest magic trick ever performed during a concert: to make all the musicians of the orchestra disappear with a single wave of the baton! Chances are our friend will stumble upon a few decoys!

With each family pass (web link) you will receive:

  • Online access to this concert-show specially designed for young audiences, 5 to 12 years old. Concert webcast live on April 25 with virtual interaction with the audience
  • Available to review on April 26 to April 28 inclusively.
  • A preparation for concert and virtual activities before the event
  • A magic prop for children
  • A partial tax receipt
