The concerts will be held on 27 September in Warsaw and 28 September in Kraków and will be free to the public. 

About NZTrio

Both versatile and genre-busting, NZTrio epitomises the relevance of live music in a digital age.
This group smashes preconceptions of classical music being stuffy and intimidating by engaging their listeners with intimate and dynamic performances.
Each concert is a unique experience.  Mixing musical cultures and genres, and often involving collaborations with a diverse range of international artists, NZTrio inspires people of all walks of life to see classical music, both old and new as approachable, essential and meaningful.
Described as a ‘national treasure’, NZTrio (Violinist Justine Cormack, cellist Ashley Brown and pianist Sarah Watkins) celebrated their first decade together in 2012
