Vancouvers Orchid Ensemble celebrates the 70th birthday of its long-time collaborator, local composer Moshe Denburg, with a concert of his music. Mr. Denburg is one of the pioneers of inter-cultural music in Canada, founded the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO) in 2001, and has created compositions for many combinations of instruments from different countries. He is passionate about bringing people together with music and plays an important role in Vancouvers world music community.

The Orchid Ensemble will perform the World Premiere of, And Gather Our Dispersed From the Ends of the Earth, a new work by Moshes nephew Canadian composer Elisha Denburg, the ensembles first commission from the next generation of the Denburg family. Dedicated to Moshe Denburg, this piece explores a melody composed by Moshe to the text of Jewish festival liturgy for an album released in 1978: Bring our scattered ones together from among the nations, And gather our dispersed from the ends of the earth.

The Orchid Ensemble has commissioned numerous works from Mr. Denburg. His three pieces for the ensembles 2001 production Road to Kashgar is the ensembles most popular touring repertoire, and the recording won a JUNO nomination. El Adon (2009) is a 4-movement work based on sacred Jewish text. One of the movements will be a World Premiere, and it is the first time all four movements are performed consecutively as a suite.

Petals of the Flame (2012) is a major work written in a 12-beat cycle with flamenco influences, to be performed with flamenco dancer Michelle Harding. Dailin Hsieh will give the North American premiere of In Midstream (2010) for solo zheng/Chinese zither.  This is a rare opportunity to hear the 26-string diatonic zheng, an instrument usually with 21 strings in pentatonic tunings.
