Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra

Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra

A professional concert orchestra devoted specifically to performing new intercultural music on a grand scale, founded in 2001, Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra is one of the first such ensembles in the world, and currently the only one of its kind in Canada. The VICO’s core roster consists of 24 musicians, trained in both the Western (European) classical approach and the musical traditions of cultures from all over the world (Asian, African, East Indian and Middle Eastern, among others).

溫哥華跨文化管弦樂團是加拿大獨一無二跨越不同文化的大型音樂團體,並在國際世界音樂及現代樂領域中,扮演重要的角色。樂團聚集了20餘位來自不同文化背景的音樂家,其規模組織的完整,包涵族群類別之多,都是樂團獨特之處。團員的音樂背景,有世界各國音樂學院畢業的高材生,也有享譽國際的傳統與民間音樂家,在找尋共同語言的同時,展現彼此不同的文化特色,這正是加拿大多元文化所要體現的精神。於VICO的音樂會中,總是可以見到西洋管弦樂器與中國、日本、越南、非洲、伊朗、中東或印度傳統樂器,在同一個舞台上,就像一個聲音的“調色盤”,創造出儘是單一文化中不曾出現過的音響色彩。
