Inter-Cultural Orchestra among Chutzpah! Festival acts
Dance, comedy, music, theatre, a silent film screening are all a part of the 13th annual Chutzpah! Festival, which also showcases talents of a few locals.
The 2013 festival includes a range of eclectic performances and workshops by international, Canadian and local artists from Feb. 7 to March 3.
The Feb. 11 concert War, Love and Loss is among such performances. The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra—which includes Richmond residents Song Yun (who plays erhu) and Kuzue Matsumoto (who plays koto)—and the Pacific Baroque Orchestra will present new works in both modern and ancient styles. Tenor and mezzo-soprano voices are accompanied by a 15-member ensemble of European baroque period instruments and traditional Asian instruments.
The concert takes place Monday, Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre at 950 West 41st Ave. in Vancouver. Tickets, $18 to $27, at chutzpahfestival.com, ticketstonight.ca or the Chutzpah! box office at 604-257-5145.
