Orchestre Métropolitain, Maison Marie Saint Pierre, LaSalle College and Aldo shoes are collaborating to spread the word about Quebec talent on an international stage.
During its first-ever international tour from November 23 to December 4, 2017, Orchestre Métropolitain musicians and conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin will travel to six European towns dressed in unique outfits designed by Maison Marie Saint Pierre with shoes by Aldo.
This project was made possible by LaSalle College and brings together several leading Quebec players.
Marie Saint Pierre graduated from LaSalle College in 1987. This internationally-recognized designer is proud to collaborate with her alma mater.
This year, Maison Marie Saint Pierre and LaSalle College came together to play a part in Orchestre Métropolitain’s first European tour, which will take the orchestra through France, the Netherlands and Germany.
Maison Marie Saint Pierre is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, building on its reputation as a leading innovator and expert.
“We have selected innovative materials that allow the musicians to move easily. This dichotomy of style and comfort allows us to create a light, flexible and elegant garment without any compromises,” says Marie Saint Pierre.
“We have developed a strong relationship with our Montreal audience, so we are proud to be taking a vibrant piece of Montreal’s artistic talent with us on the first international tour in our orchestra’s 35-year history,” says Jean R. Dupré, Orchestre Métropolitain President and CEO.
“The designs Maison Marie Saint Pierre and Aldo have provided to us, along with LaSalle College’s support, all echo the energy and connection that have developed between Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Métropolitain’s musicians. We are thrilled to give European audiences this window into Montreal’s talent and to share our creativity with them.”
