Founded in 2001 in Melbourne Australia, Sunwrae is a presenter, producer, a music chamber group, independent label and sheet music publisher for the works of composer Rae Howell.
The Sunwrae Ensemble features some of the finest musicians from Australia and abroad, hand-picked by director Rae Howell for their expertise in music performance, improvisation and individual style. The unique and flexible line-up includes piano, vibraphone, string quartet, harp, clarinets, alto flute, double bass, drum-set and percussion. Performing ‘little symphonies for the contemporary population’, Sunwrae features a repertoire of solo works to large ensemble arrangements.
Dynamic, engaging and visually stimulating, Sunwrae captivate audiences with hypnotic music textured with persuasive rhythms, improvisation and lush melodic lines. Howell’s compositions are a rare treat, crossing the boundaries of classical, jazz and cinematic music with surprising immediacy and vibrancy rarely experienced in contemporary music today.
