To close its 82nd season, the Orchestre Classique de Montréal is presenting a grand concert at the Maison symphonique, dedicated to Montreal’s healthcare workers.
This concert full of emotion includes Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 “Eroica” and Choral Fantasy, op. 80 which brings together six vocal soloists, the pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre and the choirs Les Filles de l’île and the Chantres musiciens under the direction of conductor Jacques Lacombe.
Thanks to the sponsor Medicom, the OCM is inviting 200 healthcare workers to pay their respects. Join us to applaud them!
Accept then, you beautiful souls, joyously the gifts of high art. When love and strength are united, divine grace is bestowed upon humanity.
In this text from his Choral Fantasy, Beethoven reminds us that the unity of love and strength through art can elevate us. What better words describe our healthcare heroes? Their compassion and strength particularly during this pandemic epitomize the best of humanity.
Fantasy for Piano, Soloists, Choir and Orchestra in C minor, op. 80, L. V. Beethoven
Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, op. 55, “Eroica,” L. V. Beethoven
