Beethoven’s 5th plays at Montreal airport ‘drive-in’
Entertainment Live: Music lovers streamed into an airport parking lot, socially distancing in cars to listen to the Montreal Symphony Orchestra play Beethoven, Ravel and Mozart in between flights taking off.
“I normally spend a lot of time either in front of an orchestra or in front of an airport. So we combined the two, it’s kinda special,” conductor Jacques Lacombe told AFP during an interview Wednesday evening, shortly before the performance.
Yuni Lavoie, a 20-year-old student, and three friends opted for cheap seats, parking their car in the very last row.
“We can’t see the stage, there’s a car with a roof rack right in front of us,” said the young music lover.
But for the price, she didn’t mind too much. “We’re going to listen on the car radio, it’s going to be fun.”
