Featured in many of e21’s concerts are programs which forge links between diverse musical works and the poetic ideas or emotional currents common to them, often working in partnership with artists from other disciplines. e21 has featured prominently in festivals around Victoria, including the Melbourne International Festival of the Arts, the Castlemaine State Festival, the Melbourne Autumn Music Festival, the Melbourne Early Music Festival and the Organs of the Ballarat Goldfields Festival.

The ensemble has been recorded many times by ABC Classic FM, ABC Sunday Live and a joint project between the ABC and the National Library of Australia on the vocal works of Percy Grainger. Programs have included those for the State Library of Victoria’s Medieval Imagination exhibit and an appearance at the Sydney Opera House’s Utzon Music Series.

e21 has collaborated with a number of Australian and international artists, including recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey, actor Helen Morse, director John Bolton, poet Alan Loney and Ludovico’s Band. The ensemble currently runs an on-going series of concerts of medieval music at St Mary’s Star of the Sea church in West Melbourne.
