Pre-Concert Talk and Demonstration, 7pm

An exciting and spectacular start to our season! The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra, over 20-strong, brings together virtuoso musicians from around the world in new compositions for cross-cultural ensemble by Canadian composers– including traditional instruments from China, Japan, India, Persia, Vietnam, Latin America, and Europe. VICO has been described as “a world music super-group” (Vancouver Sun), “music that sounds like Vancouver looks” (Georgia Straight), and “the United Nations of music” (CBC Radio). They present a whirlwind program of new and recent compositions by Lan Tung, Jennifer Butler, Farshid Samandari, Niel Golden, Jim Hiscott, Mark Armanini and others. Not to be missed!
