They individually have extensive careers as professional musicians both nationally and internationally. As a trio, they regularly perform throughout New Zealand, as well as in Australia, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Their last concert in the Sunday Concerts was highly praised: “a mighty concert experience – here were three musicians bent upon drawing all that they could out of the music and of themselves, resulting in performances of great excitement and intensity” (Middle-C).
