WORLDS COL­LIDE In­ter­na­tional So­ci­ety for Con­tem­po­rary Mu­sic pro­gram­mer David Pay is re­lieved that we’re not go­ing to force him to pick his favourite chil­dren from the acts on view dur­ing World New Mu­sic Days 2017, Thurs­day to Wed­nes­day (Novem­ber 2 to 8). We, though, have no such qualms. If time or money lim­its you to a sin­gle con­cert, make it the Van­cou­ver Sym­phony Orches­tra show­case: not only will you hear new works from Friedrich Hein­rich Kern, Char­lotte Bray, and VSO com­poser in res­i­dence Jo­ce­lyn Mor­lock, you’ll also be present for the world pre­miere of John Oliver and Mo­hamed As­sani’s Pressed­for­time, a con­certo for si­tar and orches­tra with As­sani in the soloist’s role. Worlds will col­lide—and com­bine, beau­ti­fully.

The Van­cou­ver Sym­phony Orches­tra is at the Or­pheum on Sun­day (Novem­ber 5) as part of ISCM 2017.
