The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra
The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra is a professional concert orchestra devoted specifically to performing new intercultural music on a grand scale. Founded in 2001, it was one of the first such ensembles in the world, and is currently the only one of its kind in Canada. The VICO’s core roster consists of 24 musicians, some of whom are trained in the Western (European) classical tradition, while others are performers in the musical traditions of cultures from all over the world (Asian, African, East Indian and Middle Eastern, among others). The VICO’s composers and musicians are on the cutting edge, writing and performing the Canadian music of the future. VICO’s mission is to be a fresh and relevant voice in the contemporary music of our country...a creative force for innovation, diversity and understanding.
What Audiences Are Saying:
"...beautiful music and performed so exquisitely..."
"...a remarkable display of cultural diversity and unity (...). What an important resource and example for our community and beyond."
"...innovative and interesting music, not quite what I was expecting but challenging and exciting!"
"...hugely inspiring and a wonderful testament to the glorious places humans can grow toward."
