The Odora Trio was formed in 2016 at the Royal Academy of Music. In 2017 the trio 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. Since then, the trio has been under the guidance of eminent professors such as Andrew West, Richard Lester, William Fong, Melissa Phelps, Jo Cole and members of The Doric Quartet. The trio has performed widely throughout London and the UK including recitals at the Royal Academy of Music, The Korean Cultural Centre, The London Charterhouse, a charity concert at St Peter's Church, Eaton Square and Michaelchurch Escley, Herefordshire, performing for Concerts for Craswall, a music society set on bringing classical music to rural areas. The trio were selected to take part in the Piano Festival at the Royal Academy of Music where they were mentored by renowned cellist Adrian Brendel. They also attended the Wye Valley Chamber Music Summer Residency in 2018, with the generous support from the SPOFF foundation. They have performed at Canterbury Music Club, Elgar's Birthplace, and completed a tour of Scotland during the summer. In the next year the trio looks forward to performing recitals at The Hay on Wye festival, Whitstable Music Society and Chichester Cathedral. They were 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 most recently were semi-finalists at The St Martin's In The Fields Chamber Music Competition 2020.
