Seraphim Trio is as much a lifelong friendship as a chamber ensemble. Formed in Adelaide in 1995, the group has enjoyed an unusually longstanding collaboration, with its current membership – Helen Ayres, Tim Nankervis and Anna Goldsworthy – dating from 1998.
Seraphim enjoyed formative study with Hatto Beyerle in Hanover, and remains dedicated to the rhetorical traditions of chamber music. It is also committed to nourishing the ecosystem of Australian music, through its flagship concert series and recordings, regional touring, educational workshops, and new format performances including audience immersions.
