  1. Syrian Encounter - an evening with Orontes Quartet The Victoria Guitar Society is proud to present the first concert of the its 2019-2020 International Concert Series! For our first concert, "Syrian Encounter - an evening with Orontes Quartet", the Orontes Quartet, hailing from Syria, will be joined by guest artists BC writer Deborah Campbell, guitar and rythm master Celso Machado and oud stylist Bèro Saker for a multimedia stage show featuring Syrian poetry, prose, solo and ensemble guitar, percussion and oud. Orontes Quartet has been performing together since 2015 when they were brought together in Beirut by US guitarist Susan McDonald. They have performed several times in Damascus at the Opera House in concerts with the singing and guitar divisions of the Higher Institute of Music as well as with the Syrian State National Orchestra. They have taught and performed at several festivals in Lebanon and Syria and released their first CD "The Clock" in 2016. Since coming to Canada to do a fellowship with Dr. Alexander Dunn at the University of Victoria, the quartet has performed in several major Canadian cities. In Canada under the auspices of the Institute for International Education - Artist Protection Fund, Orontes is excited to play at Victoria's venerated Alix Goolden Hall on October 18 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15-30 and available at Ivy’s Books, Long & McQuade, Good Earth Coffee House Oak Bay, Tanners and www.victoriaguitarsociety.ca
