Van Together, forte

Together, Forte!

Harmonia String Ensemble

Feb 1st | 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
The Orpheum

These last two years have been difficult, and it is more important than ever for us to stand Together, Stronger. On February 1st, 2022, we have invited community choirs to perform alongside the Harmonia String Ensemble. Harmonia has always been a community-based orchestra, where people come together because of their shared love of music. This LunarFest, voices from different cultures are gathering to share stories, music, and culture. We invite you to join us, not just as a spectator, but as part of our community, in a Lunar New Year celebration like no other.

About the Artist

Harmonia String Ensemble

In 2004, Tony Lee brought together a group of enthusiastic string players to read orchestral music in his home. This became a frequent event at the Lee residence and soon, the group decided to perform concerts publicly.

The objective of the group is to play chamber works that are rarely performed by large symphonic orchestras. The music they play is usually composed for strings only, or for a classical orchestra which may include a limited number of wind instruments (typically 2 oboes and 2 horns).

Initially, a whimsical name was chosen for the ensemble – I Musici Sushi – to give the group a “West Coast flavour”. Under the I Musici Sushi banner, the ensemble held three or more concerts a year. Admission was by donation and the proceeds were donated to charities.

In late December 2018, the group’s name was officially changed to Harmonia and we continue to perform and raise money for charitable causes.
