New Music Festival

Sat, April 23rd 8:00 PM - 10:00 pm

Reflecting on social media – memes, hashtags and more, VS presents its 2016 New Music Festival. A recent trend amongst living composers has been to borrow phrases from other compositions, recordings and even films as memes for new works. This festival features such pieces where a composer quotes another’s work and develops it in fresh and engaging ways. Including throwbacks to Bach’s famous concertos and the musical The Sound of Music, this festival puts a new spin on favourites from many genres. Other concerts in the festival will include a special recital with Colin Tilney, UVic’s Sonic Lab and a Guitar Recital with Alexander Dunn and Robert Ward.

Tickets are available from $15 – $20 here.
