Multi-instrumentalist Cassandra Hansen has charmed audiences from around the world with her inviting personality and performance flair. From the international stages of Europe, French Polynesia, America and Australia, Cassandra’s ability to enthrall a crowd is like no other and ensures a musical experience that will not be forgotten.

Beginning her musical studies at the tender age of five, Cassandra has performed with the electric string trio with Maske Trio as a guest entertainer across luxurious international cruise ships as well as launching new products overseas in Hong Kong, Malaysia, French Polynesia and America. Cassandra has toured extensively throughout Germany, Russia and China as a soloist and chamber musician, receiving many outstanding reviews and standing ovations.

After graduating from Brisbane State High School, Cassandra received the prestigious Sir Samuel Griffith Academic of Excellence Scholarship to study a Bachelor of Music (Advanced Performance) at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University. She graduated as a Griffith Honours College Scholar (Academic Excellence, Leadership and Community Engagement) and attends Professional Development Conferences at AUSTA (Australian Strings Association), holds membership with Griffith Honours Society and Golden Key International Honour Society.

Cassandra began her musical studies on piano, then she very quickly expanded her abilities by taking on the violin and cello. This led to forming the highly successful trio with her sisters, The Hansen Trio which was established in 2004 in Brisbane.

You'll see Cassandra performing on her beloved handmade violin and cello by Ilja Grawert, and she still regularly performs with her sisters in The Hansen Trio.
