Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra – Sounds Global Workshop Concert

Please join us for an evening of new intercultural works by SCA composers Daniel Blackie, Sam Meadahl, Annette Wong, Mark Virginillo, Marion Edralin, Lucy Li, Gordon Auyeung, Angela Lee, Kira Bennett, Christopher Giles, Katherine Wong, and Monique Ataei.

Featuring soloists Saina Khaledi (santur), Yun Song (erhu),and Finn Manniche (cello) from the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO).

In its 5th year, the Sounds Global Composers’ Workshops organized by the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra are designed to introduce composers to traditional intercultural instruments from all over the world. Participants have been working closely with the VICO performers to develop new experimental pieces that examine and combine Persian, Chinese and Western music with their own cultural backgrounds.


The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra’s mission is to act as a forum for the creation of a new musical art form, one in which all of Canada’s resident cultures can take part. Through composition, performance and educational outreach to both music professionals and the general public, the VICO serves as a voice for Canadian composers and musicians of diverse backgrounds, and fosters the creation of musical works that fuse and transcend cultural traditions.
