Festival Classica: a symphonic concert for the 50th anniversary of the album «The Dark Side of the Moon


Pink Floyd's iconic The Dark Side of the Moon album, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this spring, will be played in its entirety during a symphonic concert offered by the Festival Classica, on June 10, at the Parc de la Cité in the borough of Saint-Hubert, in Longueuil.

This free event will certainly be tinged with nostalgia for the oldest and will want to be a discovery of the sound of Pink Floyd for the youngest.

The opus was launched in March 1973 and has become one of the best-selling of the entire history of music across the globe.

Some 120 artists will take to the stage during this large-scale concert, including musicians from the Orchester symphonique du Grand Montréal and the choir of the Opéra Bouffe du Québec. 

Renowned for the power and accuracy of her voice, singer Lulu Hughes will be the guest soloist in this show presented under the direction of conductor Simon Fournier. VJ BunBun will be projecting digital art during the performance.

Classics from the British band's other seminal album, The Wall, can also be heard from 9 p.m. The site will open its doors at 5 p.m. with the presence of food trucks.

The Classica Festival is in full swing until June 17. The program is available online.
