Eclective Strings

Established in 2021, the Melbourne-based ensemble Eclective Strings is fast becoming a force in the crossover classical music scene for their powerful performances, adventurous collaborations and dynamic programs. Driven by a shared vision to create an ensemble of exceptional players, workaholics, and wonderful like-minded musicians, Eclective has quickly gained momentum, drawing together an extraordinary collective of local and international musicians.
