Trio Volant was formed in 2010 whilst all the members were studying at the Royal Northern College of Music. The Trio regularly give formal recitals and lunchtime concerts in and around Manchester and the North West as well as further afield from Wales to Essex! Past engagements have included recitals for Buxton Festival, Huddersfield Music Society, Harlech Concert Society, Lincoln International Chamber Music Festival and Maldon Festival of Arts amongst others. The Trio  particularly enjoy the opportunity to perform the lesser known reed trio chamber music repertoire.

The individual members have a wealth of solo, chamber music and orchestral experience between them including performances at The Bridgewater Hall, Symphony Hall, SnapeMaltings and Cadogan Hall. Richard is a busy freelance bassoonist and is in demand throughout the North West having completed his postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. Bea enjoys a varied career as a peripatetic teacher, animateur and freelance oboist. Tom divides his time between instrumental teaching, performing as a freelance clarinettist and working as a Music for Health practitioner. The group’s members have worked with The Halle, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, SinfoniaViVa, Raymond Gubbay’s Manchester Concert Orchestra, Northern Chamber Orchestra, National Festival Orchestra and Liverpool Sinfonia amongst others. The trio are looking forward to a number of recital engagements in 2017 as well as being involved in numerous Music for Health projects with Live Music Now and as a partner in a Youth Music funded Essex Music Services project.

Trio Volant are delighted to announce that they have been awarded the Dorothy Parkinson Memorial Award for Young British Musicians 2017 and as a result will be giving a performance at the Harrogate International Music Festival in July. Other upcoming performances for 2017 include recitals for " Friends of Buxton" at the Buxton Festival, The Heron Theatre, Friends of Northern Chamber Orchestra as well as a third visit to the Lincoln International Chamber Music Festival
