Ensemble Vivant


Hailed as “Canada’s Chamber Music Treasure”, Ensemble Vivant has been performing to sold-out houses throughout North America and Europe and has been recording for over 20 years. The Toronto Star wrote: “…pianist Catherine Wilson and her collaborators achieve that all-too-rare balance between intellectual satisfaction and pure entertainment…this is a quality musical candy box”.  With a critically acclaimed discography, the core of the group is piano, violin and cello but can grow to as many as nine if needed. Dedicated to celebrating excellence in the performance and recording of great music, the Ensemble is excited and proud to be able to introduce some of the most innovative performances and arrangements for small ensemble. No matter the genre, the repertoire chosen for their beautifully crafted programs is timeless and at the same time new. Whether an old favorite or an intriguing discovery, each piece displays the ensemble’s radiant energy and attention to detail.
