Over the last ten years the ARC Ensemble (Artists of The Royal Conservatory) has become one of Canada's pre-eminent cultural ambassadors, raising international appreciation of the Royal Conservatory and Canada's rich musical life.
Representing the organization which teaches and examines countless music students around the country, the ARC Ensemble has made a name for itself in musical performance and recording. Members of the ensemble are all senior faculty at the Conservatory.
Besides its reputation as one of Canada's pre-eminent cultural ambassadors, the group has developed a reputation for unearthing and meticulously researching music that has been long forgotten due to political change or shifts in musical fashion. Its concerts and recordings are meticulously researched and assembled with rich supporting materials and are often augmented by lectures on their musical, political and social context, or included as part of larger-themed festivals.
