Inventi are renowned for their impressive arrangements of large-scale orchestral works for chamber ensemble. They have done this in collaboration with Melbourne’s Glynn Davies all of which have been received to great acclaim by audiences and leaders in the industry. Inventi have created interactive, dynamic family shows and they engage with musicians of all ages and abilities.

Leaders in promoting new repertoire, Inventi have commissioned numerous works by Victorian composers that have gained worldwide recognition - international festival performances and competition winning works.
