Ensemble Made in Canada (EMIC), fast becoming Canada’s premiere piano quartet, continues to crisscross the country this winter with their MosaÏque Project, featuring 14 new works by 14 Canadian composers, inspired by regions across Canada. Commissioned by the Ensemble, esteemed composers from a wide variety of musical genres classical, jazz, singer-songwriter, electronic, and First Nations traditions have created a unique musical quilt, representing the many layers of Canada’s multi-faceted society and artistic culture, with the aim of celebrating the diversity and richness of Canada through the eyes and ears of its people. First heard in select cities in Ontario, Canada’s east coast, and in Iqaluit this past fall, the MosaÏque Project will be performed in concert this January through March in cities including Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Snow Lake, Montreal, Quebec City, Whitehorse, Calgary, and several more, reaching all 10 Canadian provinces and three territories before January 2020.
