In 2018/19, the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra celebrates its 17th season with a smorgasbord of concerts, chamber recitals, workshops for musicians and composers, free educational presentations, acclaimed guest soloists, and more. Audiences will experience Canadian music that is both rooted in ancient traditions and excitingly fresh to the ear; music that draws on the poetic best of many cultures, and builds bridges of imagination and communication between them.

In addition to the following concerts & other events, the VICO offers an annual slate of educational programs, including workshops for composers and other activities. Visit the Education page for details!
