Amici Chamber Ensemble
Outstanding performances. Extraordinary experiences.
We are at our best when among friends.
As we enter our 32nd season, Amici Chamber Ensemble invites you on a truly diverse musical journey. Join us for outstanding performances that promise to push the boundaries and expectations of chamber music, from rarely performed gems to reimagined interpretations – here’s your treat to some of the best music Toronto has to offer!
To start off the year, we are delighted to partner with the Royal Conservatory of Music to present a very special concert in Koerner Hall. Komitas: A Canadian Tribute will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the soul of Armenian music in a beautiful concert event featuring Amici performing alongside, renowned baritone Russell Braun, the Elmer Iseler Singers, and the Canadian Children’s Opera Company. This will be the largest concert event in Amici’s history and a tribute not to be missed!
In November, we are pleased to present our fundraising gala, Mosaic at the sophisticated Rosedale Golf Club. This year’s event will be an elegant evening including a reception with the artists, full concert experience, and three course dinner and dessert. We look forward to spoiling our guests while also raising essential funds for Amici.
Concert goers will then experience Amici’s diverse take on Bohemian Rhapsody, with a program exploring the range of classical compositions from Bohemia, to virtuosic gems inspired by the bohemian gypsy lifestyle. Building on last year’s concert, Mozart’s Party, Amici will once again perform this concert as a side-by-side with students from the Glenn Gould School at the Royal Conservatory of Music to further our commitment to developing the next generation of artists.
In March, we will revisit Cinema, our highly successful previous partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival. This concert, taking place in the Isabel Bader Theatre will once again incorporate live music enjoyed alongside some of the best silent films, artfully arranged and composed by Serouj Kradjian.
The season ends in May with a celebration of chamber music genius. Schubert Octet will feature some of the most celebrated compositions of Franz Schubert, including his monumental Octet.
This season we welcome back old friends and new, all counted among the world’s best chamber musicians. We are at our best when among friends, and these incredible musicians and composers who grace our stage are the best tribute to our name. As ever, we count you among our circle of friends, and invite you to experience our legacy of innovative, evocative programming and our passion for presenting the best chamber music and musicians.
