Louise King 1.jpg


Hailed by The Australian as a ‘spell-binding musician who exudes a vigorous artistry’, English-trained and Australian-made cellist, Louise King, is an independent portfolio musician, a recording, concert and accredited teaching artist and an ABC classics recording artist. 

Her artistic practice embodies innovation, community practice and bold exploration.  Revered for her ‘delicious embellishments and tonal subtleties, telling clarity and incisiveness’, Louise’s vivid and imaginative performance style exudes freshness and a relish for musical story-telling. 

Louise is a musician who is equally at home on stage, in the recording or teaching studio, collaborating on multi-art projects with circus, theatre and dance companies and advocates for the importance of music education in schools and the wider community.  Louise moved to Australia in 2003, and works with Australia’s leading creatives, chamber music ensembles and musicians.

Louise is a multi-award winning and competition-winning graduate of the Royal College of Music in London and the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and worked extensively in UK, Europe and Asia with their BBC Philharmonic, the Halle Orchestra and Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra before settling on the Sunshine Coast with her family in 2003. 

Hear the evocative sounds of the bush, didgeridoo bowing, musical bird calls, the sounds of stars in the night-sky and the haunting summoning of spirits past.  This collection of new music stretches beyond the rich body of work written for solo cello in the traditional Western art music canon.  Enticingly modern, lovingly curated, INTO THE DREAMING offers listeners a glimpse into contemporary music for cello.

The Regent Cinema, an art-deco theatre with much of the original architecture in place, has served the northern rivers community since 1947 and retains many of the beautiful old features of that era.The Regent Bar is fully licensed so you can enjoy a quiet glass of wine or beer in their beautiful foyer or on their balcony.
