The majestic sound of an orchestra playing harmoniously together can indeed be memorable. The image of it can be as imposing. Mixing a variety of instruments from different musical families requires individual discipline as well as great teamwork. For a composer to imagine an entire symphony is an impressive feat, but without the leadership of a skilled conductor, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the outcome. An orchestra is also a key element in other classical art forms, as well as holding its notable stand-alone performances. In this episode, Louis Lavigueur, Artistic Director and Conductor, Montréal Youth Symphony Orchestra, explains the fundamentals of an orchestra and its evolution. We meet Marianne Perron, Director, Music Programming at l’OSM, and Jean-Willy Kunz, Resident Organist. Finally, it is with great pleasure we discover Music Conductor Nicolas Ellis, who is also the Artistic Partner at Orchestre Métropolitain
