Vancouvers Yaletown String Quartet & visiting artists perform the world premieres of new intercultural works by members of the Kyushu-Okinawa Composers Association: Taishi Harada, Goushi Yonekura, Takeshi Saitoh, Yuko Kondo, Keiko Eto, and Airi Yoshioka. This concert is part of a multi-year creative development and exchange project that included concert performances and workshops by VICO musicians in Japan last summer. We are excited now to host six KOCA composers in Vancouver as we present the new intercultural works they have developed in the course of the project.

Featuring: Yaletown String Quartet, Saina Khaledi (santur), Bic Hoang (dan bau), Paolo Bortolussi (flute), Qiu Xia He (pipa), Harrie Starreveld (shakuhachi), Miyama McQueen-Tokita (koto), and Taishi Harada (guest conductor)

The VICOs annual Global Soundscapes Festival is a rich feast of sounds and rhythms, celebrating the intersection of Canadian cultures with musical traditions from all over the world. In 2019 the spotlight is on the instruments and traditions of Japan! We are excited to welcome international guest soloists Naomi Sato (sho), Harrie Starreveld (shakuhachi), Miyama Tokita-McQueen (koto), and Yuji Nakagawa (sarangi), alongside guest composers Tomoko Fukui from Tokyo and members of the Kyushu Okinawa Composers Association. These visiting artists will collaborate with a whos who of musicians, composers, and guest ensembles from BCs vibrant contemporary classical and world music scenes.
