Formed in January 2007 at the Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles, the Saguaro Trio have burst onto the international music scene with stunning successes. In quick succession, they placed third in the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in the United States, and second in the 6th Osaka International Chamber Music competition in Japan, both in May 2008.

On 26 September 2009 they solidified their reputation as one of the most thoughtful and engaging young ensembles in the classical music world today by taking first place at the International Chamber Music Competition Hamburg. In Hamburg, the Saguaro Trio also won the special prize for the best performance of a work by Brahms.

The trio's pianist, John Chen, will be no stranger to New Zealand audiences, many of whom can trace their interest in his meteoric development back to the 2001 Chamber Music Contest National Final (his quartet won that year). John made his CMNZ debut on a tour in 2005, one year after winning the prestigious Sydney International Piano Competition.

Presented in association with the Nelson School of Music Winter Festival, the Christchurch Arts Festival, and the Taranaki International Festival of the Arts.

Program One:
Alwyn Westbrooke: commissioned work.
