The VICO is hitting the road! In September, for the first time in our 17-year history, we are taking the full orchestra on tour. We are excited to be making our US debut at the invitation of Glacier Symphony Orchestra & Chorale in Kalispell, Montana; we will then travel to Winnipeg, Manitoba for our first ever Prairie appearance, hosted by Groundswell. Under the direction of guest conductor John Zoltek, the 21-piece VICO will perform new and recent compositions by Lan Tung, Jennifer Butler, Farshid Samandari, Niel Golden, Jim Hiscott, Mark Armanini and others.

We look forward to sharing the VICO’s unique brand of contemporary Canadian “orchestral intercultural fusion” with new audiences this fall. We are proud to present Canadian artists, Canadian music and a uniquely Canadian approach to diversity in art, both nationally and internationally.
