The Chloé Piano Trio, current RPS Henderson Prize for Chamber Ensemble Award winners, was formed in 2017 by emerging musicians at London’s Royal College of Music. They have performed across the UK and abroad (France, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands), including venues such as the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, Royal Academy of Arts, Champs Hill (Sussex), Austrian Cultural Forum, and at Lichfield, Banstead Arts and Hargrave festivals.

In 2020 the Trio performed for HRH Prince Charles at the Royal College of Music, and appeared at the Ticino Musica Festival in Lugano, Switzerland. In 2021 they participated in the European Chamber Music Academy sessions in Fiesole.

In April 2018 the Chloé Piano Trio (under its previous name, the Daphnis Trio) won Third Prize at the Birmingham Intercollegiate Piano Trio Competition. The Trio’s repertoire ranges from Baroque and Classical periods to modern and newly-commissioned music. They are also keen to promote and perform works by women composers, and have already recorded music by Clara Schumann, Rebecca Clarke and Lili Boulanger for an upcoming CD.

The ensemble has received tuition from high profile musicians including Norma Fisher, Johannes Meissl, Ricardo Castro, Vera Martínez-Mehner, Ulrich Koella, Patrick Jüdt, Alexander Lonquich, Lucy Gould, Richard Lester, Ben Hancox, Mark Messenger, Simon Lepper, Suzie Meszaros, Leonid Kerbel.

Upcoming activities include a concert series in south east London highlighting women in music and arts.
