An ensemble featuring some of Australia’s leading soloists and chamber musicians will take centre stage in the Gunnedah Town Hall on Thursday night. Leading industry publication Limelight has described an Ensemble Q performance as “an astonishing evening of chamber music. Quite possibly the best performance I’ve seen all year, and an astonishing feat of music-making….. frankly, this was a jaw-dropping performance”.

Ensemble Q is directed by co-artistic directors cellist Trish Dean and clarinetist Paul Dean, who are supported by a core artist list of the finest musicians in Australia.

The group has earned an enviable reputation for brilliant programming and the highest performance standard.

Composed of Brisbane-based friends from concertmaster and principal seats in the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, soloists and chamber musicians on the national touring network, and leading faculty at Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.
