Orchestre Métropolitain presents

Holiday Melodies

Two of Quebec’s most beautiful voices, Kim Richardson and Mélissa Bédard, along with pianist Taurey Butler’s Montreal-based jazz trio will join Yannick Nézet-Séguin, his musicians and the Chœur Métropolitain to bring you the OM’s very first holiday concert. Prepare to be filled with the festive spirit!

Nearly 200 artists will gather on stage to perform a selection of the best-loved holiday songs from the popular, classical, Québécois and American catalogues, dressed in a jazzy cascade of symphonic colours by arranger Antoine Gratton. Enjoy favourites including “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town,” “White Christmas,” “Joyeux Noël,” “Sleigh Ride” and Duke Ellington’s The Nutcracker Suite, not to mention Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Christmas Overture. A fabulous concert that will enchant young and old alike!
