Anna Colville is a passionate chamber and orchestral musician who has toured widely within Australia, the UK and around the world. Having lived in England for a number of years, she has also had the pleasure of performing on the BBC One Show, working with celebrity conductors on the BBC Maestro series, and performing with Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra.
Since returning to Brisbane in 2014, she has been performing with Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia, and other chamber ensembles and artists. With Camerata, she has had the opportunity to perform in many exciting works including collaborating with Expressions Dance Company (now Australasian Dance Company) on the award winning When Time Stops, recording and performing with Grammy Award nominated Tibetan singer/songwriter Tenzin Choegyal, and performing in Helpmann Award nominated concert programmes.
Prior to moving to London, Anna was a member of Fyra String Quartet and the Sculthorpe Quartet, touring extensively in Queensland and NSW, premiering works by Peter Sculthorpe, Elena Kats-Chernin and Matthew Hindson and performing at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. Highlights of this touring has included performing 500 meters underground at a working mine, and in other remote and unusual concert venues.
Anna has a Master of Music Studies from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.
