Hello World
« on: January 04, 2021, 06:40:43 PM »
good day everyone,

my name is Mathieu, born and raised in France I am now living in Montréal QC for 10 years. I am a music lover, guitarist (ex drummer), audiophile who came back to listen to more and more classical music maybe 5 years ago. I hope this forum will help me to discover more composers and pieces, get better references, and share feelings and appreciation of records. I also really enjoy (I guess I should say enjoyed nowadays) live concerts in Montréal (OSM, Orchestre Metropolitain, Bourgie Hall and McGill Opera) with my wife and it will be my pleasure to share further experiences in those halls in a near future.

Mathieu

Hello, Mathieu, and welcome. Lots of fans here of the musical groups in Montréal, and hope you get back inside the halls soon. (As do many of us elsewhere.) In the meantime, have a good time here.

Hello Mathieu. This is a good forum for discovering worthwhile music with some friendly and very knowledgable people, just stay away from the political threads. Welcome from Norway.

Welcome Mathieu!

A Canadian here. I had the good fortune of visiting Montréal in the fall of 2019 and able to attend a concert with l'orchestre symphonique de Montréal.

What a beautiful city!

Welcome!

Hopefully you won't be one of those new members who creates an account and turns out deleting it in a week.  ;)
