Muses Trio

Muses Trio are some of Australia’s leading and most exciting musicians in contemporary classical music, known for their edgy, spine tingling and virtuosic performance style: Principal Artists Christa Powell (violin), Louise King (cello) and Therese Milanovic (piano). Muses Trio celebrate music composed by women, performed by women, and focus on bringing this relatively unknown, yet vastly deserving collection of works to the stage and enthralled audiences. 2023 is the tenth anniversary of their debut and there is much to celebrate. 

Signatures of their carefully curated public performance events are guest speakers/ performers with an inspiring cause, and a focus on creating memorable experiences. Discovering, inspiring, collaborating, commissioning, connecting and supporting creative women to pursue and share artistic excellence drives the passion and impetus of their artistic focus. They have released three albums: The Spirit and the Maiden, Celebrating Clara, and Music for Calm and Catharsis. Together they have celebrated ten seasons, with performances across Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Northern NSW, Canberra, Sydney Fringe Festival, and Bundaberg’s Milbi Festival.

 In 2019 they began recording the first installment of their album with ABC Classic. Although interrupted due to Covid-19, the first tracks have been released on ABC Classic’s Women of Note Vol 3, featuring world premiere works by living Australian women composers. In 2020, they received the ABC Fresh Start Fund to commission and record Fire Dances for ABC Classic, comprising a short dance from a women composer in each Australian state and territory, reflecting on their experiences of the 2019-2020 devastating bushfire season, released on ABC Classic’s Women of Note Vol 4.  The Road Not Taken EP is their debut release for the University of Queensland’s Corella label.
