Event Description

Artists play a vital role as both the keepers and the sharers of culture, helping pass individual and collectively held memories through time, space and generations. But not all memories have been valued. Across human history, and still occurring today, artists have been silenced; their memories supressed, voices stolen and passage of knowledge through time interrupted.

In collaboration with a global circle of Indigenous and non-Indigenous composers, poets, researchers, theatre artists and filmmakers, the Gryphon Trio and guest artists Marion Newman and Aaron Wells present Echo – Memories of the World. Featuring music by Bach, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Valentin Silvestrov, Andrew Balfour, Eliot Britton and Ry Moran with storytelling, digital audio, images, and film, this multimedia concert presents resilient visions of the future from four areas of the world: Canada, Norway, Mali, and Ukraine. Transiting time and memory, this moving experience explores how history is erased, pressed, squeezed, altered, and attacked. At the same time, it celebrates visionary artists resisting suppression and gives voice to works of enduring power.

In a world filled simultaneously with beauty and horror, the need for reparation and reconciliation has never been greater.

A co-presentation of the Victoria Symphony and Pacific Opera Victoria. Sponsored by the Farquhar at UVic and Voices in Circle.

*This performance by the Gryphon Trio does not feature the Victoria Symphony and is not included in subscription purchase discount.
