A New Beginning
The OCM is pleased and proud to present this 84th season, under the theme of A New Beginning, as it welcomes its new Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Jacques Lacombe, CM, CQ.
“Taking up the baton as a new Artistic Director always generates a considerable amount of excitement and anticipation,” says Maestro Lacombe. “For me, these feelings are now accompanied by a profound appreciation for the major cultural and artistic legacy I have been charged with, and it is therefore with gratitude and humility that I begin this new mandate. I am committed to continuing the work of my two illustrious predecessors, guided by the same principles that underpinned their success: artistic excellence, innovation and originality, not to mention the relevance and impact that our orchestra continues to have in our community.”
This 84th season is inspired by these three overarching principles. Our talented orchestra and distinguished guest artists will present a varied selection of works, all veritable pearls of artistic excellence.
