Merewyn Bramble - Viola
Merewyn began playing both violin and viola when she was little and was taught by her mother. She completed a Bachelor of Music with Honours in Performance and a Master of Music Performance, both at the University of Melbourne.
Merewyn is Principal Viola of the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra and holds casual positions with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and has appeared as guest Principal Viola of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.
Merewyn plays in the Australian Octet and is a current member of Quartz, a quartet that performs as part of a series at the Melbourne Recital Centre. Violist with the Patronus Quartet, Merewyn competed in the 2015 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition and as a former member of the Tailem Quartet she was a finalist in the 3rd Australian Chamber Music Competition and performed in the 2008 ARD International Chamber Music Competition in Munich. The Tailem quartet also completed residencies at the Banff Centre, Canada, and at Yale University’s Norfolk Summer Chamber Music Festival.
Away from the music stand, nothing beats writing for children, running long distances and the fever of tap dancing.
