Ensemble Made In Canada make their fifth visit to Virtuosi Concert! Virtuosi subscribers raved about their 2019 concert calling the performance an “appealing … breath of Canadian air” and “Beautiful, thoughtful, passionate playing.” EMIC will perform works from their Mosaïque Project which won a 2021 JUNO Award for Classical Album of the Year. Composed by fourteen Canadian composers, each representing a particular region of Canada, the suite takes us on a musical journey through the country. The program is rounded out with piano quartets by Camille Saint-Saëns and Canadian pianist-composer Stewart Goodyear. Come and welcome EMIC back to Manitoba!
Generously sponsored by Margaret Kellermann McCulloch and Paul R. J. McCulloch.
