Lina Andonovska, Alexina Hawkins, Harold Gretton (ThePhoenix Trio), pictured here form left to right with Ken Tuohy of Near FM, come together to re-imagine chamber music masterpieces alongside recently penned compositions for this unique combination. Collectively, the performers have performed with some of the most acclaimed ensembles on the globe including the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Kammerakademie Potsdam and the Deutsches Kammerorchester and individually have growing reputations as international soloists and chamber musicians. The trio formed in 2008 when they were all students at the Australian National University. After parting ways for a decade, the trio have come together to perform a series of concerts around the globe during the 2018/2019 season. They are fondly named after their favourite haunt and hang out during their student days
