In it's acclaimed concert series, the ensemble is joined by leading Canadian and international guest artists. Amici concerts are events not to be missed; audiences are treated to exciting programs from the great classics of chamber repertoire along with commissioned works by Canadian composers.The repertoire for this combination of instruments is limited, but these innovative artists have overcome this by commissioning new works and by inviting their musical Amici to perform with them, enabling a broad exploration of chamber music.

The first three-concert season was launched in 1988-89 at St Andrews' Presbyterian Church in downtown Toronto — on a shoestring budget, but with invaluable support from the CBC. The following year brought a change of venue to Walter Hall in the University of Toronto's Edward Johnson Building.In 1993-94 the Ensemble moved again to the new and critically-acclaimed Glenn Gould Studio in the Canadian Broadcasting Centre and within a year its subscription series expanded from three to four concerts. All of AMICI'S concerts are recorded for national broadcast on CBC-Stereo.

Artists performing with AMICI have included Canadians Lois Marshall, Michael Schade, Joanne Kolomyjec, Catherine Robbin, Yehonatan Berick, Steven Dann, James Sommerville, and other international artists such as Shmuel Ashkenasi (Vermeer Quartet), Rivka Golani, Cho-Liang Lin, Jaime Laredo, John Cerminaro and Douglas Boyd.

At AMICI concerts, world and/or Canadian premières are frequently presented. AMICI has commissioned works by Glen Buhr, Chan Ka
