We are very proud to announce our first-ever appearance in Québec …virtually! While live touring remains on hold, a new VICO filmed concert is slated to open the renowned Festival Montréal / Nouvelles Musiques (Montreal/New Musics Festival) on February 18, 2021. The festival and concert are presented and produced by Société de la musique contemporaine du Québec (SMCQ).
The VICO’s filmed performance will be broadcast, with live commentary by host Georges Nicholson, via the link above. The video will remain available at the same link for six months; excerpts will be posted on the VICO’s YouTube channel at a later date.
We hope you can join us!
In the Key of the World (2020) is the VICO’s first full-length studio album. It features an ensemble of 28 musicians playing instruments from a wide range of musical traditions, including Chinese, Vietnamese, Persian, East Indian and European. Like the VICO itself, In the Key of the World exists in several musical genres at once: world, classical, traditional. It’s fusion music on a global scale; music that transcends borders and breaks down barriers, throwing open the doors of contemporary classical music and forging a new path towards a truly diverse 21st-century Canadian music scene.
