A Benefit Gala Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Maestro Boris Brott

Honorary Gala Presidents Marie Christine Tremblay and Jacques Marchand cordially invite you to commemorate the life, legacy, and vision of one of Canada’s greatest arts visionaries and conductors: Maestro Boris Brott.

The Orchestre classique de Montréal’s 2022 benefit gala will take place on Tuesday June 14, 2022 at 6:00 PM in the Picasso Ballroom of the Sofitel Montréal Golden Mile Hotel. The Gala will be hosted by Sonia Benezra, a well-known Quebec TV host and actor, and will feature great artists such as violinist Marc Djokic, pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre, sopranos Sharon Azrieli and Aline Kutan, and the musicians of the OCMunder the baton of Geneviève Leclair, a protégée of Boris Brott.

Join us for cocktails and a gourmet four-course dinner prepared by Chef Olivier Perret during an evening in which we will pay tribute to our beloved artistic director who was tragically taken from us too soon. We will be sharing memories and testimonies of this dear man and also share plans for the continuation of his vision for the OCM. 

Proceeds from the event will be split between OCM’s endowment and operating funds. These funds ensure the longevity of our organization that is renowned for its wonderfully eclectic programming and strong community engagement. Your support will help the OCM uphold the work and legacy of Alexander, Lotte, and Boris Brott for generations to come.
