Sketch was formed in 2021, and has a focus on creating new works by its members. Since forming the ensemble has given many premieres of music composed by its members, along with new arrangements of Japanese animation and game music, innovative work with Marike van Dijk involving dynamic, animated music notation, and music focused on responses to and interpretations of specific natural environments. Sketch is directed by Robert Davidson, using insights from his 25 years as artistic director of the award-winning ensemble Topology.

UQ Chamber Singers

The University of Queensland Chamber Singers and are a specialist ensemble that draws young vocal artists from across the University to perform diverse repertoire. Under the direction of Dr Graeme Morton - Choral Fellow at the School of Music and Director of Music at St John’s Anglican Cathedral, Brisbane - the ensemble focuses on traditional and contemporary choral repertoire including that of Australian composers. The UQ Chamber Singers also regularly collaborate with other musicians and contribute to research projects within the University.

The ensemble has performed in the Red Box (South Bank) as part of the Queensland Festival of Music, and at the University of Queensland’s Art Museum, Nickson Room, Customs House and performs regularly at St John’s Cathedral. Regional tours (such as to Cairns, Innisfail, and Toowoomba) support the University’s engagement with local communities, and the group’s research involvement extends from the canonic material from the early Renaissance, to commissions and recent compositions. Recent premieres include Finest Hour, a speech melody work commissioned from the UQ School of Music Senior Lecturer in Composition, Dr Robert Davidson.
