New works for String Orchestra + VEE
This Fall, we welcome the world to Vancouver for ISCM World New Music Days 2017! As part of the celebration, VNM presents a selection of recent works for string orchestra by four composers, representing four different countries. The program will feature Linda Catlin Smiths Orient Point (Canada), Michiko Fukazawas Lemminkainen's Mother (Japan), Jay Schwartzs Music for Orchestra III (US), and Serena Teatinis Mi Fa (Italy).

Closing the evening will be the Canadian Premiere of Suzuki Kotokas In Praise of Shadows (Canada) performed by members of VEE. Inspired by Junichiro Tanizakis essay of the same name, In Praise of Shadows is a eulogy for our collective loss of the tangible; a reflection on how modern life has become increasingly alienated from materiality as we push further into virtual and digital domains.
