Trisurgence will be a special concert event celebrating the cultural exchange between Vancouver’s Aboriginal, Chinese, and European communities. Existing professional and amateur ensembles from the three cultures will come together for the first time, as an extension of ongoing multicultural community music education activities by the group leaders. Brad Muirhead’s Chinese-jazz band ‘Koan’, the ‘New World Chinese Orchestra’ (led by Jin Zhang), the Chinese community choir ‘Huayi’ (led by Yaling Yang) and the Renfrew Collingwood Aboriginal Youth Canoe Club song and drum circle (led by Matthew Sheena & his mentor Wes Nahanee) plus special guests from the DTES community will present individual group pieces and a variety of collaborative works.
With support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program and the participation of the Government of Canada.
