Recordings of the trio’s performances are regularly broadcast all over the world and the trio is frequently invited to perform on radio, at festivals and teach masterclasses, including the Castlemaine State Festival, Music in the Round, Organs of the Ballarat Goldfields Festival, Melbourne Chamber Music Feast, Montsalvat Chamber Music Series, Ballan Feast etc. Trio Anima Mundi is currently Ensemble-in-Residence at the International Academy of Musical Arts (www.iamusica.org) and undertook a concert and masterclass tour of China during December 2018 – January 2019 as part of their residency.
