In conjunction with the Victoria Symphony Orchestra’s New Music Festival, this concert follows themes reflecting on social media. New Guitars features music that makes use of quotation and musical reference in the same way we share, hash tag and make memes. Featuring prominently on the concert will be Jacob TV’s composition Jesus is coming. The concert will also include works by Sofia Gubaidulina, Ronald Bruce Smith, and Victoria composer Liova Bueno.
