Silk Road comes to Moberly

Moberly hosted an educational concert with Silk Road for two local school groups- Trudeau Elementary and Moberly Elementary. Thanks to an arts partnership with Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO) Silk Road took us around the world through a series of unusal instruments and songs.
The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra is unique in the world, and uniquely Canadian. It is one of the first concert orchestras in existence that bring together musicians trained in a wide variety of cultural disciplines, to perform new inter-cultural works on a grand scale. In the VICO, violins and flutes rub shoulders with the shakuhachi, the erhu and the sitar.and fertile ground is created for cross-cultural teamwork between classical, jazz and world music artists.
