Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) presents

Christmas Songs with Rafael Payare

Rafael Payare and the OSM celebrate the holiday season by performing symphonic works composed for the festive period. They are joined by the OSM Chorus and Les Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal for what is sure to be a merry and unifying concert! The public will even be invited to join the festivities and sing along with the artists for selected Christmas carols. A truly galvanizing experience!
