New Music Festival: Soundscapes & Landscapes

Sat, March 11th 8:00 PM - 10:00 pm

Get set to enjoy a spatial music concert that uses innovative staging to create a unique and beautiful concert experience.

Canada has some of the most diverse landscapes in the entire world. From the cosmopolitan bustle of cities like Toronto and Montreal to the quiet desolation of BC’s desert regions, our country is home to a unique variety of environments and their consequent soundscapes. In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Victoria Symphony plans to explore and celebrate these unique regions in our land in this New Music Festival.

Featured on the program is a piece by  Pulitzer and Grammy winning composer John Luther Adams. Most of the work on the program are spatial pieces; performers aren’t always on stage, but often dispersed throughout the venue, thus engulfing the audience in a body of sound.

Please join composer in residence Jared Miller for a pre-concert talk at 7:00 pm in the hall.

Tickets are $15 – $20 and are available here.
