ENSEMBLE VIVANT and RICK WILKINS C. M.
For 3 decades Rick Wilkins and Ensemble Vivant’s pianist/artistic director Catherine Wilson, have enjoyed a rich musical collaboration. From the outset Rick championed the group’s artistry, sensitive musicality, and diverse range of styles and genres. Ensemble Vivant’s Tribute to Rick Wilkins gives a glimpse into the wealth of inspired, imaginative, brilliant repertoire that Canadian music icon, and close friend Rick Wilkins has written for Ensemble Vivant. Rick is also an honorary board member of Euterpe: Music for Health Canada, which Catherine founded. His advocacy of Euterpe has deep roots as he speaks about how music inspired him in his youth and how it became his life.

Ensemble Vivant’s Tribute to Rick Wilkins was recorded and filmed Live-in-Concert at Grace Church on the Hill on May 11, 2017.
