The social distancing and containment related to the COVID-19 have not prevented Gilles Vigneault and the Orchestre Métropolitain (OM) to work together to deliver a brand new version of the famous song of The people of my country.

While the head chef Yannick Nézet-Séguin gives zest with the kick-off to its musicians scattered for an adaptation of symphony of the famous aria, written in 1965, Gilles Vigneault takes the time to speak to Quebecers in delivering a short poem written especially for the occasion.

“There is a song to me / That is all / With your words, your / With your music / I hear you play / I hear you sing / I hear you walk / And it’s going to go well”, says the famous author-composer-interpreter.

The new orchestration of the piece of music “The people of my country”, signed Léon Bernier, has been created to bring a message of solidarity, of hope and kindness in this time of pandemic.
