Event

Standing Wave - Ink on Silk
Standing Wave presents Ink on Silk, a concert of music that embraces the traditions, timbres, colours, and textures of Eastern music, as expressed through the classic modern contemporary chamber ensemble.

New music by two hot-ticket Canadian composers will be featured:  the internationally renowned Vincent Ho, as well as Victoria-based rising star Jared Miller. The program will also include brain-teasing, spine-tingling music by Lei Liang, Wei-Chieh Lin, Stephen Hartke and Bright Sheng.

Christie Reside, flute  A-K Coope, clarinet  Rebecca Whitling, violin  Peggy Lee, cello  Allen Stiles, piano  Vern Griffiths, percussion

Standing Wave is an ensemble of six exceptional musicians who perform contemporary music with virtuosity and style, cutting across musical landscapes with sharpness, wit and intelligence. The ensemble is equally comfortable performing complex chamber compositions, new music and works with electro-acoustics. Their adventurous programming and dynamic performances combine to capture listeners' hearts and imaginations, placing Standing Wave at the forefront of Canada's new music scene.

Since its formation in 1991, Standing Wave has presented an annual season of concerts in Vancouver, has toured across Canada, collaborated with Kokoro Dance, Ballet BC, Redshift Society, Rumble Theatre, and Vancouver New Music Society. They've been featured as part of the VSO's New Music Festival, PuSh Festival, Vancouver New Music Festival, MusicFest Vancouver, the Victoria Symphony's New Currents Festival, Vancouver Pro Musica's Sonic Boom, and the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Standing Wave's third album, Liquid States, was nominated for two Western Canadian Music Awards in 2013.

"It's no cinch to accurately reproduce this dizzying beauty, but Vancouver's most accomplished contemporary chamber music group did that, without even breaking a sweat."
- Alex Varty, The Georgia Straight
