Presented by the Goethe-Institut, the German a cappella quintet Ensemble Nobiles will be gracing our shores with a series of concerts and church services from 8 to 17 March 2015. The band members met each other while they were studying fine arts at the St Thomas Boys Choir in Leipzig over a 9 year period and came together in January 2006. In the ensemble are tenors Christian Pohlers and Paul Heller and the basses Felix Hόbner, Lucas Heller and Lukas Lomtscher.

MELBOURNE: On the same day also at St John's Southgate at 9am and Scots Church at 11am for Church Services

Their music ranges from late medieval to modern age pieces and these young men attach great importance to the works of German romantic composers such as Schubert, Schumann and Mendelssohn Bartholdy and their extensive repertoire of church music. It's also not unusual for them to collaborate with other musicians.

Upon receiving a grant from the German Music Council in 2014, they were officially recognised as young professional musicians by the Federal Selection of Concerts for Young Artists in the same year. Winning 1st prize at the German National Choir Competition as well in 2014 was the icing on the cake.

Extracts of their concerts have been broadcast in other countries and they have performed concerts in Germany, as well as New Zealand, Australia, Switzerland, France and the Netherlands. Next stop, the world! You can follow these young musicians on their Facebook page and they currently have an event page up for one of their concerts here in Melbourne at the German Lutheran Trinity Church.
