Maison symphonique de Montreal is located at Place des Arts in the Quartier des Spectacles on Rue Saint-Urbain. It is home to the L'Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal (OSM) and other groups. The OSM music is director Kent Nagano. Loved the wooden interior and the acoustics.

Program: Helene Grimaud performing Bartok's 3rd Piano Concerto, then Mahler's 5th. Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducting. This is about as good as it gets, really. Oh, and we were literally in the front row, right in front of Helene. PRETTY INTENSE NIGHT!

When in Montreal you should find time to enjoy the Montreal symphony. The venue is state of the art and the musicians are amazing. After all Montreal is so much about arts and culture.
