Amici Chamber Ensemble

Who We Are/Our Mission

Amici's aim is to perform the world's finest chamber music, with its most accomplished musicians, while delivering innovating programming by: 1) Performing and programming innovative repertoire, and collaborating with both top-tier Canadian and internationally renowned musicians, and other artistic disciplines. 2) Maintaining and developing the Ensemble's important role in broadening Canada's music library by regularly commissioning new works, adding to over twenty commissions to date. 3) Offering performances and recordings that cover a broad range of traditional and contemporary works, and includes commissioned works by Canadian composers. With innovation as a permanent keystone we introduce our audience to lesser-known works through accessible presentation and collaborations. 4) Ensuring the future of chamber music in Canada by engaging, collaborating with, and teaching Canada's emerging musicians, both performers and composers.

DBSA Funding Allotments

Lottery funds will be used to support the production of a 5 in person concert series plus digital concerts of world class chamber music and education initiatives.  Funds are specifically used to pay for the artistic fees of paying artists to perform and the venue/production costs directly associated with the concerts, such as musicians and artists fees, technical, production, venue rentals, instrument rental and tunning (piano etc.). As we are a charity, we are able to offer tickets to attend our performances for significantly reduced costs in order to remove the barrier of attendance.  We also have several additional specific promotions we offer such as student tickets for $10 and Under 30 tickets for $15 as well to ensure young people can attend our performances.
