Orchestre
FILMHARMONIQUE

The Orchestre FILMharmonique is Canada’s premier film music orchestra, composed of world-class Canadian musicians.

 

As part of an ongoing series, the FILMharmonique presents a number of film music concerts at Place des Arts’ Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier to sold-out audiences every year.  Featured composers include John Williams, James Horner, and Howard Shore, Canada’s most esteemed film score composer.

The FILMharmonique has also accompanied several internationally renowned artists including Stacey Kent, Andrea Bocelli, Stevie Wonder, Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones) and Hans Zimmer.

 

The FILMharmonique is dedicated to making classical music accessible to a wider audience. For some members of our audience, Filmharmonique concerts are a first experience of live classical music. Our goal is both to engage existing audiences, as well as to cultivate a new and inclusive audience of classical concert-goers across Canada. We are committed to Canadian artists, cultural exchange, music education, and accessibility.
