Arundo Reed Quintet
The first group of its kind in Australia, Arundo gains its inspiration from the Dutch “Calefax Reed Quintet”, a group formed some 20 years ago.
The repertoire draws from the old and new, ranging from William Byrd’s music of the 1500s right up until John Polglase’s “Moon Over the Day (2006). All Arundo’s pieces have been especially composed or arranged for this unique combination of instruments.
Arundo’s name is derived from a type of cane, arundo donax which is used to make reeds for all the instruments in their group.
The players are drawn from Perth’s finest reed instrumentalists.

I.S.Q. – Imperial String Quartet
ISQ is the sexy, sophisticated and edgy manifestation of the classical Imperial String Quartet.
Entitled ISQ, the all-female line up of two violins, viola and cello are the ‘rock’ side of the Imperial String Quartet. The addition of a percussionist adds a new dimension to their sound.
Each member of ISQ has been classically trained, but has also vast experience working in recording studios, live in concert with rock bands, and appearing on television and radio.
The repertoire they perform is not the usual String Quartet fodder: from Radiohead to The Beatles, Michael Jackson to Cole Porter, the girls’ repertoire is unique and written specifically for them.
ISQ brings the wonderful balance and tone of a string quartet to some of the greatest contemporary songs, making them a unique and exciting group you’ll be glad you heard.
