A diverse and colourful musical landscape, exciting new work rooted in centuries-old traditions, and the promise of adventure…all this will be on offer as Capilano College School of Music collaborates with the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO) to present the world premiere of Dreams of the Wanderer, a major new piece by BC composer Moshe Denburg. The composition weaves together the musical traditions of many cultures, incorporating texts sung in Farsi, Mandarin Chinese, Hebrew and English by tenor soloist Amir Haghighi and the combined choirs of the Capilano College Music Program, all under the direction of Lars Kaario.
The concert program will also include a cappella songs from a variety of cultures, performed by the choirs, as well as several instrumental works for smaller forces performed by members of the VICO.
