In 2018, under the direction of Julian Prégardien, the orchestra presented J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion, a concert that also featured a remarkable choir made up of students from three Montreal universities.
In 2019, Reinhard Goebel conducted the orchestra, which also featured soloist Bruno Delepelaire, Principal Cello of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
