Ensemble Vivant has been a pioneer in the piano chamber music world, championing exciting, innovative programming that ranges from Classical to the syncopated rhythms of Ragtime, The Great American Song Book, Latin, and other jazz-related styles. The group’s unique instrumentation suggests and delivers these diverse genres, which the group has been steeped in since its inception over 3 decades ago. Ensemble Vivant is also known for its passionate, virtuosic performances, and warm engaging rapport with audiences of all ages. As jazz great Rick Wilkins, C.M. commented, “This is the highest-level chamber music-making. No matter the genre, there is magic in Ensemble Vivant’s music-making.” View a preview of a Ensemble Vivant’s ‘Tribute to Rick Wilkins’ at https://youtu.be/sFkq41AHX1M?rel=o
