Panoramic city views and live music.
A Free Orchestra Concert Will Happen On Top Of Mount Royal This Summer

So, Montreal is a pretty wicked diverse city with plenty of artists, musicians, and so on. Really, this city is the arts, defined. 

The Orchestre Métropolitain is right up there with some of the best orchestras and musical arrangments in town. 

Symphony music is not something we speak of often, unless its a Harry Potter movie, but maybe that should change. Sometimes a perfect evening can be found being swept away into classical music.

This summer, the L'OM will be performing a totally free concert in one of the most mesmerizing places you could imagine. 

Outside, up top on Mount Royal! 

If the panoramic views and stunning city skylines weren't enough to draw you out to the Mount Royal lookout at least a few times over the year, this may be one of the best reasons to go this summer. 

Part of the Campbell Concert Series, the Orchester Métropolitain and conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin will present an outdoor concert in front of the Mount Royal chalet. 

Attendees are advised to come early as this free symphony concert is sure to draw a crowd.
