First and foremost, our passion is playing to live audiences all over Aotearoa NZ and the world. But we are also passionate about commissioning new works by talented kiwi and international composers, collaborating with other artists across the arts genre spectrum, teaching high school students about the relevance of live musical experiences, chatting online about life as a professional musician, and offering tertiary composition students a chance to have their work professionally critiqued and aired in our bi-annual NZTrio Composing Competitions.
