Reinvigorating the classics and inventing the music of now…

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.

Defying stereotypes, Inventi do everything. They are equally at home premiering works at a new music festival, performing in Australia’s finest concert halls and chamber music series, or playing Bach from a 3-tonne truck in a pop-up venue, and introducing new Australian music to young children in a library story time project. Internationally, Inventi musicians have performed at the BBC Proms, London’s Southbank, with San Francisco’s Ensemble Parrallele and Magik*Magik, as well as at music festivals in the UK, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Prague, Italy and the USA.

Passionate about regularly performing Australian music, Inventi regularly commission new works from Australian composers. In addition to this they mark their own Inventi stamp on traditional works including an awe-inspiring arrangement of Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony for five players.

Inventi Ensemble is an exciting voice in Australian music.
