The Carneval musicians have studied abroad, at Melbourne University Conservatorium, the Victorian College of the Arts, the Australian National Academy of Music, and privately with teachers of international standing. Over many years Carneval musicians have enjoyed receiving awards and scholarships for their high standard of playing. Between them they have performed throughout Australia, Europe, Japan, and South Africa.

The Carneval players are in demand as session musicians recording at many of Melbourne’s top studios. Film recording highlights include Elizabeth, Sliding Doors, The man who sued God, The Interview, What becomes of the broken hearted, and My brother Jack.
