The Fauves are one of Australia’s most unique bands and never fitting into any particular genre has afforded them a longevity rare in the music industry. After meeting at high school, the four friends became a regular fixture on the Melbourne live music scene and are recognised for their witty lyrics, melodic pop-rock and often satirical, evocative exploration of Australian themes.

Alto Strings’ warm-toned and beautifully blended performances leave their audiences mesmerised and engaged. Alto Strings have performed with the Melbourne, Adelaide, Tasmanian & West Australian Symphony Orchestras including performances working with the late great Pavarotti, Harry Connick Jnr, KD Lang, Katy Perry, Hugh Jackman and Roberta Flack. Alto Strings are graduates of the Faculty of Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne.
