Performing across the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia, Ensemble Amarcord has won numerous international competitions, including Spain's Grand Prix Choir Competition, Finland's International Choir Competition, Austria's first Choir Olympiad and the International Mendelssohn and German Music competitions.
