LE is proud to champion the music of Canada, and has in fact performed more than 130 works by Canadian and Albertan composers.

Over the years, LE Ensemble has featured an extraordinary array of guest artists and composers, including Dame Evelyn Glennie, Hans Graf, James Campbell, Joel Sachs, Onalea Gilbertson, Barry Shiffman, Robert Aitken, François Houle, Laura Jayne Bowler, John Corigliano and many others. Together they have premiered and commissioned many works, presented cabarets, theatrical shows and special events. LE Ensemble has appeared at various Canadian festivals, including University of Calgary’s Happening Festival of New Music and Media, Alberta Scene, Festival of the Sound, Ottawa Chamberfest, University of Toronto’s New Music Festival, and ISCM World Music Days in Vancouver (2017).
