2016 Sound of Dragon Music Festival
After the successful premiere in 2014, the 2nd instalment of this bi-annual festival will feature Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra, Orchid Ensemble with Kasandra "La China" (flamenco dance), Silk Road Music, Taiwan's award-winning band Ka Dao Yin, soloists from Taiwan's Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra, Paul Plimley with improvisers from the East, the all-star Sound of Dragon Ensemble, and more.
Sound of Dragon Music Festival is Vancouver's first festival devoted to "Chinese music", showcasing very diverse musical styles: ancient folk and classical repertoire, contemporary compositions, jazz, world, fusion, and avant-garde improvisation in solo, chamber, and orchestral performances. While presenting authentic traditional music, the festival promotes creativity and innovation in imaginative new ensembles and projects, utilizing unusual cross-cultural instrumentations. By presenting musicians, ensembles and composers from different ethnicities, nationalities, and musical genres, Sound of Dragon re-defines "Chinese music" and reflects Vancouver's growing multicultural environment, representing a highly creative music scene.
