Professional choral music ensemble wins new audiences in Brisbane

One Equal Music’s 2024 season offers a diverse repertoire of early and contemporary vocal music.

One Equal Music (OEM) is the brainchild of husband and wife duo, Tomasz Holownia and Eleanor Adeney, co-Directors of the recently created and only professional choral ensemble in Brisbane. Inspired by John Donne’s poem, ‘Bring Us, O Lord God’, elegantly set to music by William Henry Harris, the title ‘One Equal Music’ reflects the philosophy of the ensemble.

OEM has three major aims: first, to support and encourage the growth of choral music in Australia, second, to perform cutting-edge choral music at a professional standard and, third, to foster equality for all musicians in the ensemble. With increasing community support and a rapidly expanding program, OEM seems well on track to achieve its aims.
