Event Description

The Victoria Guitar Society is proud to present the first concert of the its 2019-2020 International Artist Series! For our first concert, "Syrian Encounter - an evening with ORONTES QUARTET", the Orontes Guitar Quartet, hailing from Syria, will be joined by guest artists BC author Deborah Campbell and guitar and rhythm master Celso Machado for a multimedia stage show featuring Syrian poetry, prose, solo and ensemble guitar, and percussion. The Orontes Quartet has performed at the Damascus Opera House in partnership with the Syrian Higher Institute of Music as well as with the Syrian State National Orchestra. They have taught and performed at several festivals in Lebanon and Syria and released their first CD "The Clock" in 2016. Since escaping the conflict and coming to Canada through a fellowship with Dr. Alexander Dunn at the University of Victoria, the quartet has performed in several major Canadian cities. Under the auspices of the Institute for International Education - Artist Protection Fund, Orontes is excited to play their final Canadian recital at Victoria's venerated Alix Goolden Performance Hall.
