They have performed in venues ranging from intimate pubs to Roy Thompson Hall and are constantly searching for new ways and spaces to bring art music to a wide variety of audiences. VC2 pride themselves not only on performing works by the great masters of classical music, but also original arrangements of the modern classics of popular music. They have a deep connection to the world of New Music and are constantly striving to present new works by living composers, especially those that are home-grown.
VC2 will be performing a top-notch programme of new music for cello duo, featuring works by Brian Current, Hunter Coblentz, Thomas Demenga, Sophie Eckhardt-Gramatté, Osvaldo Golijov, Domenic Jarlkaganova, Sean King, Ana Sokolovic, and Raphael Weinroth-Browne.
