SHARON AZRIELI PEREZ has been heard extensively around the world in opera and in concert

From New York to Tokyo, and from Paris to Tel Aviv. Praised for her “exceedingly beautiful voice, full of feeling” (Ha’aretz), Azrieli Perez is a specialist in the operas of Giuseppe Verdi and is considered the next true Verdiana in her embodiment of such roles as Aida and Leonora in Il Trovatore. Possessing a rare instrument, suited to the stylistic demands of Cantorial music as well as operatic repertoire, Sharon is noted for her interpretations of music on Jewish themes.

In March, she performed Bernstein’s Symphony No. 3 “Kaddish” in Jerusalem with the Jerusalem Symphony directed by Steven Mercurio and with narration by Academy Award-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss.

Israeli-born, Grammy-nominated MATT HAIMOVITZ is acclaimed for both his tremendous artistry and as a musical visionary

Pushing the boundaries of classical music performance, championing new music and initiating groundbreaking collaborations, all while mentoring an award-winning studio of young cellists at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music in Montreal. Mr. Haimovitz made his debut at the age of 13, as a soloist with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic, and at 17 he made his first recording for Deutsche Grammophon with James Levine and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Haimovitz’s recording career encompasses more than 20 years of award-winning work on Deutsche Grammophon and his own Oxingale Records.

In 2000, he made waves with his Bach “Listening-Room” Tour, for which Haimovitz took Bach’s beloved cello suites out of the concert hall and into clubs. Haimovitz’s honors include the Concert Music Award from ASCAP, the Trailblazer Award from the American Music Center, the Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Grand Prix du Disque, and the Diapason d’Or. His newest recording is BEETHOVEN, Period. on the Pentatone-Oxingale Series.

Press Highlights Our story

Montreal is, every year, the host city for thousands of new immigrants arriving from the world over. The Montreal Musicians of the World Symphony Orchestra is composed of musicians that reflect the ethnic, religious and national diversity that is now the fabric of our city.

The orchestra speaks only one language, but one that is understood by everybody, wherever they come from: MUSIC. The goal of the orchestra is to serve as an example of peaceful and hamonious integration of multiple cultures in a diverse society through the arts.

Dans un monde de turbulence et de mésentente, cet orchestre de musiciens à l’image des Nations Unies, en colportant leurs messages de coopération et de paix par la musique, vient redonner l’espoir au monde d’un climat harmonieux et vivable pour tous.Marcel Tremblay

En effet, en créant l'OSMM, vous avez donné à des nouveaux arrivants la chance unique de s'intégrer à leur société d'accueil à travers la pratique de la musique. Vous participez ainsi activement à deux sphères essentielles au développement et à la prospérité de Montréal, soit l'integration des immigrants et les arts.Michel LeblancPresident, Montreal Chamber of Commerce

Experience unique sur la planete, l’Orchestre symphonique des musiciens di monde regroupe des musiciens classiques issus de la diversite. L’initiative a vu le jour allors que Joseph Milo et Lucy Ravinsky ont entrepris de regrouper des artistes montrealais qui ne peuvent etres embauches pas des orchestres reconnus.Yves BernardLe Jumele 2009

While the newspapers are full of talk of reasonable accomodation and how best to integrate immigrants in Quebec, there are a number of organizations that have – quietly and solidly – been doing just that all along…..the Musicians of the World Symphony Orchestra…Toula FoscolosTranscontinental 2007

Six years ago Mr. Milo, the conductor was speaking with the doorman in the building where we reside. This gentleman said that he was the principal cellist in the Moscow Symphony. He explained that he was grateful for his new home, however very unhappy and disillusioned regarding his inability to find a way into what he described as a ‘çlosed’ musical scene in Montreal. He had no contacts and there was far too much competition. A few weeks later a similar situation happened when a pizza delivery man seeing Mr. Milo’s piano, mentioned that he was a violinist by profession who played in the Bucharest opera orchestra and was newly arrived in Montreal looking desperately for orchestral playing opportunities.

It was that day that Mr. Milo suggested we try and create a Symphony Orchestra; as he was in fact a conductor, and I had managed the McGill Chamber Orchestra in the past. This ensemble would be expressly for the benefit of the professional immigrant musicians in Montreal; as an illustration of our ’integration’ capabilities while returning to them, their professional dignity.
