“The series is an exciting mixture of established artists on the Australian and world music making scene and up-and-coming performers who are about to make the breakthrough and become really established performers,” he said.

“We’re really fortunate at UQ to be able to include world-class members of the School as part of the series, including our Ensembles in Residence and teachers such as Irit Silver and Malcolm Stewart.”

The series begins with performances in consecutive weeks by the School of Music’s ensembles in residence, White Halo Ensemble and the Viney-Grinberg Piano Duo.

“In this appearance White Halo demonstrates its versatility with a selection of duo and trio repertoire,” Associate Professor Chalabi said.

“The next week, Viney-Grinberg Piano Duo begin their year with an exciting mix of eclectic new compositions and favourites from the piano duo repertoire,” he said.
