Serenade String Quartet
The sun sets, the fairy lights twinkle and the champagne flows. Beautiful music perfumes the air, the Serenade String Quartet has arrived!
Serenade String Quartet is a brisbane-based string quartet specialising in parties, weddings, functions, soirees and private concerts.
Choosing only the best repertoire, the quartet plays a range of styles including classical, jazz, celtic and pop.
This year we are proud to announce that we will be presenting special concerts for senior citizens and aged care: A Classical Christmas. These concerts are flexible to the needs and musical tastes of our audience. Upon consultation we will create a special program that may be interactive with singing and carols or something that is more reflective in a concert style. Our goal is to uplift and to bring joy to our audience in ways that is meaningful to them. These concerts may also be a solo violin recital, a performance with voice and piano or a string trio depending on appropriateness, facilities and budget.
Music is so powerful in so many ways, it connects us to the past, makes the present special and brings hope for the future. It is a art that everyone can enjoy regardless of age or experience. It can suspend worry and illness and bring light and joy into our lives.

She also attended orchestral music camps including the Australian Youth Orchestra’s National Music Camps 2013 & 2014 and the Australian International Symphony Orchestra Institute 2013.
Ellie is a keen chamber musician and has been performing in many ensembles across Brisbane for the past 12 years.
A highlight has been to attend the Australian Festival of Chamber Music Winterschool in 2014 where she performed in master classes with leading Australian and international chamber musicians.
In 2017 Ellie was a founding member of two chamber ensembles - the Byrne Harrison Scalia Trio (Daniel Byrne Clarinet, Natalie Scalia Piano) and Les Trois Graces (Anna Coe Flute, Linley Chai Harp).
The BHS Trio studied core repertoire for the group including Schumann Fairytales, Bruch Eight Pieces and Mozart Kegelstatt Trio and also commissioned new repertoire for the group from emerging Brisbane composers.
Les Trois Graces has so far focused on french composers with the intricate Debussy Trio and Jollivet's Petite Suite including a performance in Brisbane City Hall to an audience of a three hundred.
See Ellie perform the Alfred Hill Viola Concerto with the Queensland Youth Orchestra:
As teacher Ellie uses the skills she developed in her studies at the conservatorium and has a teaching style influenced by Feldenkrais technique that is curious, playful and considered. Ellie focuses on using music learning to develop confidence, discipline and a sense of self as well as to play beautifully.
