They also attended the Wye Valley Chamber Music Summer Residency in 2018, with the generous support from the SPOFF foundation. In 2017, they were prize winners at the Isaacs and Pirani piano competition at the Royal Academy with their performance of Tchaikovsky’s piano trio in A minor. They were also prize winners at the Harold Craxton Chamber Music Competition at The Royal Academy in February 2020 performing the John Ireland Piano Trio no.3 in E, and were semi-finalists at The St Martin's In The Fields Chamber Music Competition 2020. The trio has been under the guidance of eminent professors such as members of The Doric Quartet,  Andrew West, Richard Lester, William Fong and Jo Cole.

The trio is committed to raising awareness for social action within the music profession. They have performed concerts to fundraise for charities such as Help Musicians UK and the Saakshar School Appeal and are committed to bringing classical music to rural areas.
