Enharmonie Chamber Ensemble
|Bio||Enharmonie Chamber Ensemble is a Brisbane-based classical chamber music group, established in 2010, with principal players Allan Hall (cello), Tertia Hogan (piano) and Lee Norrell (flute). ECE often teams up with guest artists (violin, vocals, narration) to present a wide variety of repertoire. ECE has performed many concerts in the greater Brisbane area, including Music by the Sea in Sandgate, Brisbane City Hall Main Auditorium, State LIbrary of Queensland (part of their WWI Commemorative program), and regularly presents concerts as part of the 4MBS Festival of Classics. ECE prides itself on bringing music to life for audiences and believes that the intimacy of a small audience is a wonderful way to experience live music. As well as performing a wide range of repertoire, every so often ECE designs and presents programs with narrative storyline: recent examples include the story of Robert and Clara Schumann, and WWI Commemorative programs which includes excerpts from war diaries, all of which have been very well received by audiences. In 2016-17 repertoire has included Telemann, Scott Joplin, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Haydn, Nicholson, Weber, and Bach; in 2018 ECE plans to present music of Beethoven, Czerny, Kats-Chernin, Rossini, Debussy, Bernstein and more. Programs of popular classics are available for home concerts at any time, along with programming based around current concert repertoire. We can also design a concert program to suit your audience.
Our principal artists: Allan Hall (cello) holds a Bachelor of Music (QCM), and post-graduate performance degrees: Graduate Diploma (Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts) and Master of Music (ANU). He has performed with various orchestras including AYO and the Queensland Orchestra and has performed cello concerti with the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra. Tertia Hogan (piano) holds a recent MPhil(Perf) from the University of Queensland along with LMusA and LTCL diplomas in piano performance. Her performance experience includes chamber music, recording, and a performance as concerto soloist with the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra. Lee Norrell (flute) holds a Bachelor of Arts from the School of the Ozarks and a Masters’ Degree from the University of Akron. He has performed with various orchestras including the Queensland Pops Orchestra; he has appeared as concerto soloist with the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra on numerous occasions.
While ECE prefers a real piano (preferably a grand piano for the best ensemble sound and fullest programming of repertoire), we do have a keyboard which can be used when an adequate acoustic instrument is not available.
