This enterprising Brisbane-based chamber ensemble performs delightful vocal works by composers

from the nineteenth century, including Schumann, Brahms, Schubert, Massenet and Rossini.

May, 2023:

We've had a busy time in the recording studio! SMQ have been commissioned by the State Library of Queensland to record 40 previously unrecorded songs, piano and violin pieces by Queensland composers from the early-to-mid 20th century. We've had a wonderful time documenting these charming Aussie melodies, assisted by Geoff McGahan at Mark McDuff's stunning 'Farmhouse Studio' in Chandler. Stay tuned for a concert date later this year to launch this recording project.
