Monique Clare X Alta Collective Vocal Ensemble

Wielding a cello and strikingly crafted vocals, multi award-winning songwriter Monique Clare delivers impactful indie-folk. From tears to belly laughs, she weaves a cathartic story of grief and love through driving rhythms, heart-tugging harmonies and intricate cello lines. Her intrepid career has spanned teaching cello in war-torn Afghanistan, touring her critically acclaimed album ‘Sight’ to European festivals, and leading hikers up to mountaintop sunrise concerts. Monique’s disarmingly candid stage presence is born from years of touring the US, UK, Ireland and Canada with The Maes, playing cello for everyone from Kate Miller-Heidke to Eminem, and gracing stages from the Melbourne Cricket Ground to Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Featured on ABC’s The Music Show, described as a “laudable and overdue debut” by Listening Through The Lens, her 2022 debut album ‘Sight’ took out awards for album and song of the year at the AFMAs and QMAs. With a smile as wide as the Cheshire cat's, and an audacious tendency to reveal her deepest secrets onstage, her live show is offbeat and mesmerising.

A newcomer on the Melbourne chamber music scene, Alta Collective is already charming audiences with a fresh and genre-defying approach to treble vocal music. Combining movement, story-telling and the collective verve of experienced singers, Alta breathes life into a world of music written for high voices.
