Awarded the 2006 CBC Galaxie Stars Award from the Banff Centre for the Arts, EMIC was featured in 2008 Chatelaine Magazine’s 80th anniversary issue as “Women to Watch” and an ensemble that is leading the next generation of classical musicians.

EMIC has performed for such prestigious series as Toronto Summer Music, Winnipeg Virtuosi, Montreal Pro Musica, SUNY New Paltz, New York Ukrainian Institute, Stratford Music Festival, Ottawa Chamberfest, Parry Sound Festival of the Sound, Jeffery Chamber Music Series, Lindsay Concert Productions, Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Society, Almonte in Concert, Women’s Musical Club of Toronto, and Vancouver Music in the Morning.
