Carte Blanche to VB8

March 10 @ 7:30 pm (19:30) - March 24 @ 11:00 pm (23:00)

$10

VB8 is a versatile octet, performing contemporary works by young, up-and-coming composers, and older, established repertoire. This programme invites the listener on a lavish trip to South America and Europe to experience all the sights and sounds of the world, both past and present. From Renaissance composer Vittoria’s O quam gloriosum, to Stratocumulus by 21st century award-winning composer Benjamin Sigerson, this program shows VB8’s personality: evocative, and deep, with beautifully blended and highly skilled voices to serve the rich repertoire they choose to perform.
