Les Trois Amies is a Flute, Violin & Cello trio formed in 1996 initially by schoolfriends, and has become very well known and loved in Perth for exquisite professional performances and classical wedding music.

Currently the main musicians comprising the group are flautist Rebecca McGregor, along with violinist Rebecca Glorie and cellist Madeleine Dawe.  All hold a Bachelor of Music degree, majoring in Classical Music Performance, and have performed locally, interstate and internationally.

Rebecca McGregor started playing the flute at ten years old, and was selected for the Western Australian Primary Schools' Band.  After receiving a music bursary at MLC, she studied at the WA Conservatorium of Music with the late Brian Warren, a good friend and colleague of James Galway. She completed her Bachelor of Music majoring in Classical Flute Performance, at the University of Melbourne (Victorian College of the Arts) in 1995, studying with Wendy Clarke, Principal Flute of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.  During her study in Melbourne, she performed at the National Gallery of Australia, the Victorian Arts Centre and the Melbourne Town Hall, as well participating in a Canberra tour.  Rebecca has been the editor of the West Australian Flute Society newsletter during 1996-1997 and a member of the West Australian Music Teachers' Association.  She currently teaches flute full time at Santa Maria College, St Mary's Anglican Girls' School and St Mark's Anglican School.  In addition to performing with and managing Les Trois Amies, Rebecca often performs on both flute & piccolo with the Fremantle Symphony Orchestra, Fremantle Chamber Orchestra and Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, and sings with the WA Symphony Orchestra chorus.

Rebecca Glorie commenced violin lessons at the age of 8 with Graham Wood O.A.M.  She successfully auditioned for the WA Conservatorium of Music at the early age of 15 years, where she studied with Peter Exton.  During her time at the Conservatorium, Rebecca won numerous awards, and became a casual member of the WA Symphony Orchestra at just 17 years old.  As part of the Young Artists Programme, she has performed as a soloist with the orchestra on two occasions, and is currently a member of the WA Symphony Orchestra.  In 2000, she performed solo for Rolf Harris, and as part of Ensemble Archangelo for the Queen's royal visit to Australia.  Rebecca took up a scholarship at the Australian National Academy of Music during 2002-03, travelling to both Brussels and Salzburg to perform solo respectively in the International Festival "Musici Artis" and the International Mozarteum Summer Academy.  In 2003, she was selected to study Masters in Performance at the Eastman School of Music.  Since 2004, Rebecca has performed as a freelance violinist and as a member of the piano trio, Trinity, which was selected to study at Yale University in 2006, after competing in the 2005 Melbourne National Chamber Music competition.  In addition, Rebecca has performed as a soloist with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra as a string finalist in the ABC Young Performers Awards, and with the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra.  She has studied with numerous esteemed violinists and other, such as those of the Australian String Quartet, Tokyo String Quartet and Keller String Quartet.

Madeleine Dawe began learning the Cello at the age of 9.  She received a music bursary to Penrhos College, and then continued on to study music performance at the University of Western Australia, graduating with Honours.  At UWA, she studied with Suzanne Wijsman.  Madeleine was a member of the Western Australian Youth Orchestra for several years, where she did numerous tours to regional WA, as well as a Centenary of Federation tour to Tasmania.  She participated in a number of National Music camps, as part of the Australian Youth Orchestra organisation.  The multi-talented Madeleine is also a qualified physiotherapist.

Les Trois Amies also uses many other talented Western Australian musicians to cope with demand and if the original three are either unavailable or ill.

The very first performance of Les Trois Amies was at the Head of the River Rowing Event in a marquee for Guildford Grammar School.  Since then, Les Trois Amies has performed at virtually every function venue, hotel, chuch, park, art gallery and restaurant in Perth, as well as performing on Rottnest Island, on boats, in Margaret River at various wineries, in Broome, in Karratha, at many private homes and at Perth Zoo. 

As a result, Les Trois Amies is very knowledgeable of Perth's venues and has numerous contacts within the corporate and wedding industries, which enables smooth liaison for functions.

Classical wedding music is a very important and personal aspect of both a wedding ceremony and reception, and for any function for that matter.   The live music of Les Trois Amies creates a very special ambience at a wedding ceremony, whether it be held in a garden or a church.  The quality background music is also suitable for pre-dinner drinks and dinner at a reception.  The group is also available for other functions such as cocktail parties, corporate functions, birthday parties and dinners. 

Over the years, Les Trois Amies has developed a huge repertoire list, featuring an extensive variety of both classical and contemporary music.  This allows us to be flexible and adaptable in providing suitable music for a variety of clients, as we can cater for all age ranges and tastes.  There is sure to be something for everyone.  In addition, Les Trois Amies is able to read the mood of a function, and play an appropriate music selection to suit that atmosphere and the guests present. 

To give an example of the diverse nature of our clients, in 2006, Les Trois Amies played at the wedding of Aria-award winning Bob Evans/Kevin Mitchell, performing a variety of contemporary music, as well as providing strictly classical wedding music for Perth-born, New York-based opera singing sensation Rachelle Durkin's wedding.

As an acoustic group, Les Trois Amies generally requires no amplification (except if performing for a large crowd, or large outside area), which reduces cost, and is very portable, so can move relatively easily from one part of a venue to another if necessary.

If you are unsure of the music you would like played at your function, Rebecca McGregor can provide free advice and assistance with your selections.  Les Trois Amies welcomes special requests for a particular song or piece that does not appear on their repertoire list, given the availability of sheet music and sufficient time to arrange the music.  Extra fees may apply.
