Fondation de l’Orchestre Symphonique de Québec

Arts & Culture, Education

About

The mission of the Fondation de l’Orchestre symphonique de Québec is to receive and administer donations and bequests through funds to support the activities of the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec. It promotes the achievement of cultural and educational project development objectives. The Orchestra’s sustainability depends on both the recognition of artistic achievements and the support of donors.

For its part, the Orchestre symphonique de Québec, founded in 1902, performs and promotes symphonic music. It offers concerts, musical and educational activities to audiences of all ages and backgrounds in the Capitale-Nationale, but also in the province of Québec and beyond. In addition, the dean of Canadian orchestras has always been closely linked to the events that have marked the history of Quebec City and participates in many national and international events. In addition to the major works of the symphonic repertoire, the orchestra has premiered numerous works by Quebecer, Canadian and foreign composers.

Our Impact

For nearly 120 years, the Orchestre symphonique de Québec has welcomed the greatest symphonic musicians from Quebec, Canada and all over the world. The Orchestra has had outstanding conductors such as Joseph Vézina, Wilfrid Pelletier, James DePreist, Yoav Talmi and Fabien Gabel. In addition, it has welcomed many renowned conductors and soloists such as Sergiu Celibidache, Charles Dutoît, Alain Lefevre, Louis Lortie, Yo-Yo Ma, Marie-Nicole Lemieux, André Gagnon, Oliver Jones, Arthur Leblanc, Angèle Dubeau, Marc Hervieux, Plácido Domingo and hundreds of others.

Furthermore, as a leader in education and cultural mediation, the Orchestre symphonique de Québec contributes to the democratization of symphonic music with innovative projects such as Zoo Musical®, the digital educational platform La Galerie Symphonique, Symphonic Matinees (elementary) and Notes à répétition (high school). The Orchestra is distinguished by its collaboration with the Conservatoire de musique de Québec and the Faculty of Music of Université Laval.
