Welcome to Erato Ensemble. We are Vancouver’s professional art-song ensemble performing and commissioning new works since 2006!

Not your grandmother’s classical music, Erato’s performances range from beautiful to challenging to humorous to thought-provoking. Erato dares to be different; to show the public that skilled musicians can bring melodic new music to Vancouver and beyond!
