Friday, July 17th, 2015

AES59 1Prof. Martha de Francisco of McGill University’s Schulich School of Muisc share with us her thoughts on the first day of the AES 59th Conference on Sound Reinforcement, which is currently going on in Montreal.

AES59 2Prof. de Franciscio says: Today, on the first day of the AES 59th Conference, we had a wonderful experience: We visited Maison Symphonique, Montreal’s new concert hall.  Jean-Pierre Primiani from the Montreal Symphony Orchestra welcomed our group of 70 guests, and he gave a presentation of the beautiful concert hall inaugurated in 2011. Organist Jacquelin Rochette then presented the new grand organ from Casavant Frères. He played a music program that allowed us to assess the magnificent acoustics of the hall and the superb quality of the instrument, an ideal musical partnership.”
