Here’s an overview of the OSM+ event Capelio participated in, accessorizing the hostess!
The OSM+ evening took place in three stages last 31 of October. The guests were first greeted during a welcome cocktail sponsored by Botanist Gin Cointreau. Cocktails were created especially for the evening by one of the best mixologists in Montreal. During the cocktail, guests were able to admire three painters at work. Afterwards, the guests attended the concert “The Phantom of the Opera”, where the 1925 film was playing while organist William O’Meara improvised a soundtrack on the great organ Pierre-Béique recently acquired for the OSM. After the concert, the party continued into the wee hours of the morning with an open bar, appetizers, DJ, dance floor topped with a giant phantom of the opera mask, a photo booth, a lounge area and a silent auction. Every effort was made to ensure the evening would be memorable!
The highlights? The concert, which gave for many guests the opportunity to hear the organ of the OSM for the first time. Also, later in the evening, professional dancers landed to surprise guests by running a brilliant ‘’halloween-y’’ number who created a wonderful effect of surprise and mystery.
This event helped to raise funds for the activities of the educational mission of the OSM and gives an opportunity for young people to discover the symphonic repertoire. OSM + evening also provides an additional opportunity for young professionals to discover their orchestra enjoying one of the best reputations in the world. ‘’We sincerely hope that activities such as evening OSM + will help to bring about a new generation of patrons in Montreal’’, said Isabelle Nadeau, member of the organizing committee.
