Directed by Daniel Constantineau, Galileo (formerly known as the Orchestre symphonique de la Vallée-du-Haut-Saint-Laurent) is the only Canadian orchestra specialized in historically informed performance of symphonic repertoire from approximately 1730 to 1930.

Galileo takes on the challenge of exploring and blending different musical styles and disciplines, deserving its slogan and promoting the renewal the orchestral experience.


Daniel Constantineau


“A conductor with irreproachable rhythm, precise and attentive direction, Daniel Constantineau allows the orchestra to maintain free and natural expression from beginning to end of every piece on the program, revealing himself as a sensitive interpreter and an outstanding musician in every way.”

This is the praise from the formidable (and intimidating!) music critic Claude Gingras in June 1997, from La Presse newspaper, concerning the first  concert given by Daniel Constantineau and the Orchestre philharmonique du Grand Montréal.
