The VICO is pleased to invite interested composers and music lovers to audit two upcoming workshop sessions, in which the 18-piece intercultural orchestra will be exploring some of the artistic challenges associated with creating and performing music for instruments from all over the world (e.g. combining improvisational and scored music, addressing tuning and notation issues, orchestration techniques and strategies for achieving balance and harmonic blend, and so on). The rehearsal/workshop will be facilitated by Jin Zhang, Mark Armanini and Neelamjit Dhillon. The instruments involved will include: dizi, xiao, erhu, santur, ud, zheng, sanxian, pipa, bansuri, tabla, sitar, tar, flute, clarinet, oboe, violin, viola, cello, double bass, marimba and hand percussion.
