Downtown Montreal Will Have Colourful Glowing Fountains This Summer

And you can actually control them.
Downtown Montreal Will Have Colourful Glowing Fountains This Summer

I don't know what it is about this city but we always manage to have some of the world's the coolest installations. We have the musical swings that went viral, the giant light projections you can control and even magical light seesaws.

But now we have something even cooler, it's called MAËSTRO. Not only is it a beautiful, musical, glowing neon art installation, but you can actually control it.

That's right, with MAËSTRO you literally become the conductor.

Simply step onto the stage, grab the magical conductor's wand and control your own fountain orchestra.

The fountain features music from:

  • Bizet - “The Toreador Song” from Carmen.
  • Tchaikovsky - “The Waltz of the Flowers” from The Nutcracker.
  • Beethoven - Symphony no. 5 in C minor.

The MAËSTRO fountain will be open May 14 to 31 and August 6 to 10.
