As a chamber musician, Ewald was a founding member of Geistrio, which has performed at the Toronto Summer Music Festival in the summer of 2011 and at the Canadian Opera Company’s Free Concert Series in May 2012. He was also a founding member of the Roddick String Quartet, which has performed at the Toronto Summer Music Festival in 2008 and at the Montreal String Quartet in 2009, among many others.
