The Medal of Honor of the National Assembly is awarded to personalities who, due to their work and commitment, deserve the Assembly as well as all of Québec society’s recognition. This choice is the result of a unanimous recommendation from the Assembly. Renowned personalities such as Hubert Reeves, Michel Tremblay and Dany Laferrière have received this honor in the past. Yannick Nézet-Séguin is very proud and humbled to receive this honor granted to him in recognition of his colossal work for promoting and sharing his love of classical music with the public for the last fifteen years, and would like to share this honor with all the musicians he works with in Québec as well as around the world.
