Robyn graduated from the University of Melbourne with High Distinctions and took a scholarship with the ABC where she was leader of the ABC’s Sinfonia in Sydney. She then appeared as a guest soloist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra on national television as part of the ABC’s 50th Anniversary celebrations of radio in Australia. Robyn has toured Germany with the ensemble “Australia Felix” performing Australian compositions in concert and has also worked as a violinist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Opera Australia, the Australian Ballet and for radio, film and television. Robyn is adept at performing both orchestral, classical as well as jazz and swing music.
Ensemble Classique is a flexible combination of top-class classical musicians who have performed for over 15 years together in the professional music scene in Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney. The combinations of musicians that can be hired are based around strings, wind, piano and indeed most of the orchestral instruments that can perform easy-listening classics. The repertoire of Ensemble Classique is very imaginative and includes many arrangements of popular songs and numbers from the last two centuries as well as the traditionally known “classical” repertoire. Ensemble Classique is ideal for adding that stylish acoustic sound and that look of “class” to functions and events requiring live music.
Ensemble Ritz (Duo to Quintet)
Ensemble Ritz emerges from a concept of top class live music such as that found in the early days in venues like the Ritz Hotel in London and Paris. The soft, pure sounds created with the inclusion of the violin along with the more familiar, reeds/saxophone and guitar with optional double bass, provides the ideal backing for any function requiring non-intrusive easy-listening music that allows patrons to enjoy conversation along with fine music.
