Magical Symphony – Bal des enfants

The OSM is pleased to offer, free of charge, Le bal des enfants 2021: Symphonic Magic, rebroadcast from December 20, 2021, to January 10, 2022. Magician Daniel Coutu presents the BIGGEST magic act ever performed during a concert, making all the musicians of the Orchestra disappear with a single wave of his wand! We can just imagine how this sympathetic friend’s journey is riddled with pitfalls! This children’s concert show, especially designed for children aged 5 to 12, will sprinkle a little magic on your holiday season! A beautiful concert to listen to as a family, with activities and games included!

Daniel Coutu has pursued his passion for magic with dynamism and enthusiasm since 1999.
