Born in Cairns, Australia in 1977. Ambre began piano studies at the age of 3 and gave her first public concert at age 5. In 1989, at the age of 11, Ambre achieved a World Record, which she still holds, when she received the Associate and Licentiate Diplomas of music in the same year.
At 16 she received the First Prize in her first International Music Competition held in Argentina,South America. The following year Ambre was invited to return to Argentina to perform theferociously difficult Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No.3 with symphony orchestra. Also at age 16, Ambre recorded and released a CD of music by Franz Liszt titled Devotion which was funded by Australian artist Arthur Boyd who was astounded with Ambre’s natural ability and invited her to be the first Artist-In Residence at his Shoalhaven Property ‘Bundanon’ on the South Coast of Australia.
Ambre has performed both solo and with orchestras throughout Australia, Switzerland, England, Italy, Spain, Poland, North and South America, New Zealand, Tahiti, Fiji, Japan, Alaska and China. Ambre performs not only the great classics but shows a flair for jazz and blues by combining talents with James Morrison occasionally as a guest displaying a fusion of musical styles. In 2006 Renowned Hollywood film writer and composer Lalo Schifrin was commissioned to write a unique Double Concerto for Jazz Trumpet, Classical Piano and Symphony Orchestra especially for Ambre and James Morrison.
It is important to Ambre to give back to the community through her ability as much as possible and she has been named Ambassador of the Brain Foundation of Australia and was previously Ambassador of the National Trust for 4 years. Ambre created a project called GIRL PIANO TRUCK in which she takes a piano in a truck to remote and
disadvantaged communities giving free concerts in schools and orphanages.
In 2013 Ambre launched the project and travelled solo to India, East Timor, Thailand and Belarus and late last year presented 20 concerts in 12 days throughout the Philippines (Manila, Cebu, Bohol and Tacloban). Ambre has just returned from Tanzania, Africa where she made a short film, which has just been released. In 2016 Ambre received a nomination for Australian of the year due to her humanitarian work. Ambre is a proud Ambassador of Peace for the United Nations Peace Program.
As a highly accomplished public speaker, every year Ambre gives in excess of 40-50 talks as a motivational guest speaker to various clubs/societies and companies.
In early 2018 Ambre will release her 7th studio album which will be her 2nd album of original compositions.
