Cultural Olympiad looks ahead to 2009 and announces two iconic international artists to next year’s program

Open Call for artists’ proposals and Artist Registry invite widespread participation
Vancouver, BC – Following on the heels of its successful seven-week 2008 festival, the Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad is well on its way to developing the 2009 program. An open call for artists’ proposals for Cultural Olympiad 2009 is now underway and organizers today announced the first two major international events for Cultural Olympiad 2009. Co-presented in partnership with the City of Vancouver’s cultural community, the United Kingdom’s Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Orchestra and Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company will perform next February as part of Cultural Olympiad 2009, marking the Vancouver debut for both these world-renowned ensembles.

“These stellar ensembles reflect the level of excellence, spirit of adventure and diversity of programming that characterizes the Cultural Olympiad,” said Robert Kerr, program director, Cultural Olympiad for the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC). “We’re thrilled to partner with the cultural community to bring these iconic artists to Vancouver audiences, both of whom have had enormous impact on the international cultural landscape.”

Among the world’s most revered chamber orchestras, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields is celebrated for its technical brilliance and glorious interpretations of the classical music repertoire. Part of its 50th anniversary tour, the orchestra’s program features Bach, Mozart and Walton, led by sensational young conductor and violin soloist Julia Fischer. The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields performs February 15, 2009 at the Orpheum Theatre, and is a co-presentation with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
