EMIT received Best of the Bay awards from the Creative Loafing magazine in 1999 and 2002 for its concert activities. EMIT is a member of Chamber Music America and was a recipient of an ASCAP/Chamber Music America “Award for Adventurous Programming” in jazz for its 2004-5 season. During its 2006-7, 2007-8 seasons, EMIT received Chamber Music America/Doris Duke Charitable Foundation grants to present Encore Concerts with the Jovino Santos Neto Quinteto and the Rudresh Mahanthappa Quartet.
