Juno-nominated Land’s End Ensemble of Calgary (John Lowry, violin; Beth Root Sandvoss, cello; Susanne Ruberg-Gordon, piano; Vincent Ho, Artistic Director) is dedicated to introducing audiences to new music by Canadian and International composers, and to performing landmark chamber works of the 20th and 21st centuries.

“If you want to see a contemporary music ensemble perform provocative, brilliant and relevant work, with an eye for the narrative, then look no further than this bold ensemble that does it all” – Calgary Herald

LE Ensemble is continually creating legacy projects with living composers. A previous LE Centrediscs release, Gravity and Grace, won a Juno Award and a Western Canadian Music Award in the category of Classical Composition of the Year (2014) for the work Field Notes by Allan Gordon Bell, which was composed for LE Ensemble and James Campbell.

LE’s discography also includes two winners of the Western Canadian Music Award for Outstanding Classical Recording, as well as JUNO nominations for My Life in Widening Circles and Kickin’ It 2.0. 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 multi–Grammy Award winner Dame Evelyn Glennie, Oscar-winning composer John Corigliano, acclaimed conductor Hans Graf, multi-award winning clarinetist James Campbell, 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).
