The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) holds arguably the world’s most important contemporary music festival in a different city each year.  Much like the Olympics, cities bid to be the host and this year it’s in Vancouver.  In this second program of two, we hear from Canadian composer, Jennifer Butler, Lituanian composer,  Sabina Ulubeanu, young American composer, Robert J Coe, and more, all performed by Vancouver’s best musicians.
