The music

Embark on a journey to South America, to its sun-kissed beaches, pulsating clubs, and rhythmic beats. Follow the adventures of Aldo, the spirited saxophone, who loves nothing more than to party and dreams of one day dancing at the famed Rio Carnival with his cousins. This original tale, created for the OSR by Valentine Michaud, the artist in residence for the 2024–25 season, introduces the saxophone family to us, from its smallest members to the biggest.
