Catch one last outdoor concert before summer flies the way of the Canada Goose.
The Montreal Symphony Orchestra is launching its 2010-2011 season with a free open-air event featuring music by Strauss, Stravinski and Gershwin. An homage to Haiti, the show takes place in front of the MSO’s future l’Adresse Symphonique home with narration by Quebec writer Dany Laferrière and performances by Luck Mervil and Cirque Eloize.
That all sounds fab but we’ll be focused on the sexy flip of Kent Nagano’s hair as he waves the baton.
7 p.m. September 2, on the Parterre of the Quartier des Spectacles, Montreal, 514-842-9951, www.osm.ca

Sometimes that CD gift card just doesn’t quite say enough. Instead, how about treating the one you love to a bit of Bach and Beethoven?
Just in time for the holidays, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra is offering concert packages starting at $135 for three shows in 2008. Choose from the Canada-Russia Series, One Master One Maestro or Black and White for piano fans.
And watching sexy conductor Kent Nagano wave his baton isn’t so bad either.
