Pointe-à-Callière's Port Symphonies

On March 10th 2013
At 1:30 p.m.

Sundays March 3 and 10

On two occasions during our wonderful winter season, Pointe-à-Callière will bring Old Montréal to life with the sound of its Port Symphonies. For this unique outdoor concert, trains, tugboats, boats moored in the Old Port for the winter, and other urban instruments, will unite their musical sounds to create an original work of the most unusual kind.

This year, inspired by the temporary exhibition Samurai - The Prestigious Collection of Richard Béliveau, composer Nakamura will present a Symphony inspired by his native land, Japan. As well as the boats and trains, Nakamura’s symphony will also incorporate human voices, flute, and various percussion instruments including the taiko, a powerful and evocative Japanese drum.

The event begins at 1:30 pm on Place Royale, the ideal vantage point from which to fully enjoy the Port Symphonies.
