"We feel very honoured and excited about this opportunity to participate in MICMC. It's going to be an amazing experience for us! We’ve heard a lot of positive feedback about the competition so we are waiting impatiently to embark on the journey. It will also be our first time in Australia, so we are very excited to see as many things as possible." Magdalena Geka, violin
Distinguished by a powerful on-stage unity and a rare sensibility, Trio Sōra was born of a passion for chamber music shared by close friends at the Paris Conservatoire.
Trio Sōra is the winner of the Parkhouse Award and a prizewinner of international competitions in France as well as abroad. Having performed in the USA, Belgium, England, Finland, Germany, Latvia and Switzerland, they have been invited to play at such venues as the Philharmonie de Paris, Wigmore Hall and at festivals such as the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival, La Folle Journée de Nantes, the Roque d’Anthéron Piano Festival as well as Festival International d’Art Lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence, where they shared stage with the great violist Tabea Zimmerman.
Always striving to deepen their musicianship, Trio Sōra is working with Mathieu Herzog, the Artemis Quartet at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and Claire Desert at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. They have also been privileged to work with artists such as Menahem Pressler, Quatuor Ebène, Quatuor Danel, Belcea Quartet, Eberhard Feltz, Valentin Erben and Gary Hoffman. The Trio is a resident ensemble of the Singer-Polignac Foundation in Paris and ProQuartet-CEMC, they are also a European Chamber Music Academy ensemble. The Trio Sora is thankful for the support from Safran Music Foundation, Adami, and Fondation Meyer.
