about

ENSEMBLE VOLANTE is: Alisha Redmond (composer/pianist), Piera Dennerstein (soprano) and Grazia Marin (visual artist/lyricist). They formed in 2017, fuelled by a deep appreciation of each other’s work and a desire to combine their art forms in new ways. Together they create new contemporary art music inspired by the boundless Australian landscape. Their work seeks to inspire the listener with a sense of wonder and immersion in the natural world through song.
