This Week in Montreal: June 23 to 29

Concerts Populaires Celebrates 50 Years

In June 1964, at the initiative of mayor Jean Drapeau, the first event of the Concerts Populaires took place: a homage to Vienna with the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal under the baton of Alexander Brott. This year, the Orchestre Métropolitain, directed by Julian Kuerti, will performs an integral reproduction of the 1964 inaugural concert with soprano Aline Kutan. Six concerts will be presented between June 26 and July 31 at the Centre Pierre-Charbonneau, Thursdays at 7:30 pm. 
 - Renée Banville
