The Island that yearns to gain recognition and bring joy; the Maple Leaf that hopes to leave behind a bright future.
Led by conductor Nicholas Urquhart, the Vancouver orchestra Harmonia is joined by Indigenous youth ensemble Chin-Ai String Orchestra for “The Island and the Maple Leaf”, an evening of cultural conversations through music. The repertoire follows the theme of the Taiwanese’s aspiration to spread joy around the world, and the Canadians’ pursuit to nurture a promising future for the country. These ambitions go hand in hand and join together to inspire everyone who has been affected by the world’s crisis.
