It’s not every day a conductor gets named in a Tweet from the Prime Mister of Canada. But, that’s what happened as news broke on Monday that Yannick Nézet-Séguin would be staying on as Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of Orchestre Métropolitain, in perpetuity.

Trudeau took to Twitter to congratulate Nézet-Séguin.

“Well Done! Congratulations, Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Happy to hear that you will continue to showcase Canadian talent and culture with the Orchestre Métropolitain indefinitely. We are very proud of you”.
