Inventi Plays Symphonies
Inventi Chamber Orchestra
"Opie and Doecke are something of a “dream team” with the lower versions of their instruments making the most beautiful warm rounded tone that melded into each other in the most beautifully organic way." "Considerable virtuosity coupled with assured musical intention on the part of all players made this imaginative interpretation an immensely rewarding experience" Classic Melbourne

History & background
Inventi Ensemble is a team of highly talented and dedicated musicians who are passionate about bringing music to as many people as possible. We believe in creating world class performances of classical music for all to enjoy. Touring is important to us, as it enables us to bring music to more people in regional centres. We believe in working flexibly with venues and responding creatively to their needs. No stage? no problem - we can work with any and all situations. We have performed on the back of a truck, in caves, shopping centres, amphitheatres, concert halls, art galleries and more.
Marketing selling points
On top of the world class performance we produce, we can also offer private tuition, masterclasses, workshops, instrument making, kids music sessions and more. The symphonies performance is the main selling point. Bringing artists such as Lyndon Watts (bassoon with Munich Philharmonic, Germany), Peter Clark (solo concert artist and regular performer with Australian Chamber Orchestra), Alexander Arai-Swale (multi award winning double bassist), Carla Blackwood (solo French Horn from Innsbruck, Germany). All these players are leaders on their instruments and bring a unique energy to our performances.
