The captivating waltzes of Johann Strauss and the Strauss family have had an enduring appeal to audiences throughout the world for more than 150 years.

Led by the charismatic violinist RUSSELL McGREGOR, the Johann Strauss Ensemble was founded in 1985 by musicians of the famous Bruckner Orchestra, based in Linz.

RUSSELL McGREGOR is a remarkable Australian success story. The brilliant violinist left Melbourne twenty years ago, with the aim of pursuing a career in Vienna, one of the world’s great music capitals. Since then he has established himself as the city’s most famous STEHGEIGER (conductor/soloist in the manner of Johann Strauss himself). This modern day Waltz King communicates his passion for this music to audiences of all ages and also engages them with fascinating anecdotes about the Strauss family and their music, making these concerts a unique and truly memorable experience.
