About the NZTrio
Violinist Justine Cormack, cellist Ashley Brown and pianist Sarah Watkins first joined forces in 2002 and were Ensemble in Residence at The University of Auckland from 2004–2009. From the outset, their artistry, intensity, and approachability have captivated music lovers throughout New Zealand, Brazil, the US and UK, China, Korea and Indonesia.

Actively commissioning works by leading New Zealand composers, as well as more recently composers from both China and Australia, NZTrio seeks out collaborations with musicians of diverse musical genres and styles.

Highlights in 2010 include an exciting collaborative performance with Finnish bass/accordion duo Lepisto & Lehti at the WOMAD festival in New Plymouth, the premiere of a joint composition by Gareth Farr and Richard Nunns for piano trio and taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments), a new commission by composer/filmmaker David Downes at the New Zealand International Arts Festival, and a series of performances representing New Zealand at the Shanghai World Expo in July.
