ARC Ensemble Announces New European Representation

November 9, 2011 – This week, the Grammy-nominated ARC Ensemble announced its exclusive representation by the powerhouse European management group Konzertdirektion Schmid (KDS). The move significantly raises the group's European profile through additional performance and touring opportunities.

ARC is renowned for its "Music In Exile" series, which focuses on the works of composers exiled from Germany as a result of the upheavals of the Second World War. The project has won universal acclaim on international concert stages in the U.S., Netherlands, Hungary, Sweden, Italy, Poland, and Canada, among others. Two of their recordings, Right Through the Bone and On the Threshold of Hope, have been recognized with Grammy nominations.

Formed in 2002, the ARC Ensemble features faculty members of The Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School. The core ensemble comprises a piano quintet plus clarinet, with the addition of strings or woodwinds as required. The Ensemble's Artistic Director is Simon Wynberg.

KDS represents some of the world's best-known classical artists in Europe, and the ARC Ensemble joins an elite group of musicians which includes Yo-Yo Ma, Yefim Bronfman, Christia Tetzlaff, the Scharoun Ensmble and The King's Singers, all of whom have performed at The Royal Conservatory's Koerner Hall in Toronto.
