Signature event

McGill University’s Bicentennial Closing Concert

October 23, 2022

La Maison Symphonique

McGill’s Bicentennial anniversary is a significant occasion to celebrate as a community, by reinforcing the deep bonds between McGill, Montreal and Canada. On Sunday, October 23, 2022, at 3:00 p.m., the Bicentennial will come to a close at the Maison symphonique, with a spectacular closing concert by the McGill Symphony Orchestra, Schulich Singers, the McGill Concert Choir and McGill University Chorus.

Under the direction of conductor Alexis Hauser and chorus master Jean-Sébastien Vallée, the stage will be filled with remarkable Schulich musicians and alumni soloists Charlotte Siegel, Jenny Ivanovna, Benjamin Butterfield, and Philippe Sly, performing Beethoven’s Symphony No.9 in D minor, culminating in the unforgettable Ode to Joy. For almost 200 years, the ‘Ode to Joy’ has symbolised hope, unity and fellowship – across borders and through conflicts.​

To celebrate the closing of the University’s 200th anniversary celebrations, the McGill community is invited to attend for free. To receive tickets, you must register.
