Biography

The Sunwrae Ensemble was founded in 2001 in Melbourne Australia. A feast for the eyes and ears and showcasing a hand-picked selection of Australia’s finest musicians, the unique and flexible line-up includes piano, vibraphone, string quartet, harp, clarinets, alto flute, lap-steel guitar, double bass, drum-set and percussion.

Dynamic, engaging and visually stimulating, Sunwrae stylishly captivate audiences, performing instrumental music by Artistic Director Rae Howell, textured with persuasive rhythms and spectacular improvisation! One of the world’s premier nu-chamber groups , Sunwrae features a repertoire of solo works to large ensemble arrangements, performing a lush blend of melodic phrases and interweaving rhythms. Howell’s compositions are a rare treat, crossing the boundaries of classical, jazz and cinematic music with surprising immediacy and vibrancy rarely experienced in live music today.

Described as “Animated and energetic…” (Music Forum), “Spellbinding” (Music Network) and “Hypnotically beautiful with a flowing cinematic feel…” (The Age), “Sunwrae is, without question, Australia’s best kept secret… The music paints every style, every influence, in complete, organic harmony.” (The Silent Ballet).

Sunwrae Album releases include Never Stops to Wait (2005), several Live CDs & DVDs from the Eavesdropping Concert & Art Exhibition Series (2003-2007), Autumn Never Fall (2009) and Live at Thornbury Theatre (2010).
