Inventi Ensemble is a dynamic new chamber ensemble run by Artistic Directors Ben Opie (oboe) and Melissa Doecke (flute), drawing together Australia’s finest soloists and chamber musicians. Internationally, Inventi musicians have performed at the BBC Proms, London’s Southbank, with San Francisco’s Ensemble Parrallel and Magik*Magik, as well as at music festivals in the UK, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Prague, Italy and the USA.
Splashing onto the Australian music scene in early 2014, Inventi Ensemble have already performed as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week, Melbourne Music Week, Melbourne Children’s Week, the Alice Desert Festival in Alice Springs and a tour in South Australia. This is in addition to starting a monthly music series in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and running a weekly music programme at the Maribyrnong Detention Centre. They also present interactive concerts for organisations such as Vision Australia and Probus Clubs. Their 2015 season includes invitations to perform at Ngeringa Arts and the Melbourne Recital Centre where they will perform their commissioned world premiere work by Luke Styles as well as the Australian premiere of Edwin Roxburgh’s Eclissi.
