Welcome to the fifth season of Concerts at the OSilas!

During these most unusual times, this season's Concerts at the OSilas adopts a new format: live recording in the OSilas Gallery and concert broadcasts to ticket-holders over the Conservatory YouTube channel. Join us for what will certainly be an unforgettable season of performances.

The concerts are presented by our own Concordia Conservatory faculty in an intimate setting in the wonderful OSilas Art Gallery, where the music is performed amongst the extraordinary exhibitions. Our concerts are both fun and educational, with the performers talking about the pieces they will play. We are looking forward to presenting these concerts to you.
