For those who cannot make the live concert, a webcast will also be available live and replayed throughout December 21st. Maestro Boris Brott and the OCM will be accompanied by soprano Jacqueline Woodley, mezzo-soprano Marie-Andrée Mathieu, tenor Antoine Bélanger and baritone Neil Craighead.

As part of its 82nd season entitled Women of Exception, the OCM pays tribute, at each concert, to a great woman outside the world of music who has marked the community in her own way.
