Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) presents

Play me a poem

Children’s Corner concert

Verses, rhymes, Grasshopper, Ant: let yourself be transported to the world of fables and poetry. You don’t need to be a poet or a musician to travel with us… thanks to our conductor and guests, discover how composers such as Saint-Saëns were inspired by words and how they introduced them into their music. Both the young and not-so-young will marvel at the beauty of language and symphonic repertoire in this concert that brings music, theatre and poetry together!

*This concert is presented in French only. However, the educational guide will be available in French and in English.

Recommended for children 7 years and older.
