Yo Yo Ma Plays Murray Beethoven: Will the OSM Play It in Their New Concert Hall?

Jeanne's been around for the last few days, and I've rediscovered some of the great bits from Seasame Street. This one actually dates from some time after Elin and Lukas were Sesame Street age, but Jeanne thinks it's terrific. Obviously she loves music, which I suppose comes naturally, given her muscian mother and her melomane father.

An early introduction to the joys of "classical" music is a great, audience-building endeavor. Nice to hear that crowds have turned out to catch the opening of Montreal's new symphony hall (La Maison symphonique) and the mini-oconcerts that members of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal give while folks wait to visit and enjoy the new hall.

It was nice of the OSM to have an open house, but I was disappointed that I wasn't allowed in.

I came at 3:30 PM on Friday (they said they'd let the last people in to the open house at 5 PM.) But there were already too many people inside, and they weren't letting anyone in for the rest of the day.

I was angry, but I guess this incident shows how much Montrealers love music.
