Thank you for coming to Queensland Composers

  A big thank you to everyone who came to watch us last Wednesday, at the Queensland Conservatorium, for “Queensland Composers”. It was a lot of fun for us to revisit all of these wonderful works that had been written for Ady, and which brought back so many great memories from the ensemble’s seven years



Queensland Composers: who is Rachel Merton?

The Ady Ensemble’s next concert is just a couple of months away, and we thought that we’d introduce some of our featured composers for this performance.

The Monte Carlo Dilemma

The Ady Ensemble is getting everything ready as it approaches its first rehearsal later this week.

Welcome back, Mike!

For our May concert we welcome back Mike Forsyth to the Ady Ensemble. Who? Well, read on to find out. Here at Ady we are always pleased to support new works from local and interstate composers. We’ve performed several of Mike’s works now, and we’re thrilled to be able to perform another of Mike’s works this



The name’s Bach…C.P.E. Bach

So our May concert will include one of the string symphonies of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, whose 300th birthday anniversary just passed us by earlier this month. So you might be saying to yourself, “is he related to J.S.?” Such a question would have been the other way around in the latter part of the



If you’re looking at the 4MBS brochure…

[Update: the good people at 4MBS have assured us here at the Ady Ensemble that the remaining copies of the brochure will be altered accordingly (will this make the original brochure a collector’s item?), and they’ve already changed our details on their website. Thanks to their wonderful people for all of their help!] …for this
