Saturday, April 16, 2016: Ensemble Made In Canada

Saturday, April 16, 2016




Elissa Lee, violin; Sharon Wei, viola; Rachel Mercer, cello; Angela Park, piano

“What do you get when you take four young and extremely talented female Canadian musicians who studied across the United States and Canada; have each won several prestigious awards; developed into stellar soloists in their own rights; and joined together to form a piano quartet? You get Ensemble Made In Canada…” (Winnipeg Free Press). Canada’s premier Piano Quartet, Ensemble Made in Canada “…deliver(s) chamber music on a beautifully polished silver platter.” (Musical Toronto). Their performance of Omar Daniel’s piano quartet, commissioned by the Ensemble, was inspired by an old Estonian text about four mystical maidens and comes just two weeks after its World Premiere in Toronto. No stranger to the Virtuosi stage, it is our pleasure to welcome them back for our Anniversary season.
