The Orchestre Symphonique de Québec’s Pleins Feux concert on the Plains of Abraham received a very warm reception from concert-goers on what was otherwise a cold and autumn-like night.

An army of 50,000 descended onto the plains last Monday night, with folding chairs and dressed in winter clothing, to hear Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
