Consisting of three prize-winning musicians from Taiwan, Japan and Germany, Trio Opal was founded in 2017 at the Royal Academy of Music, where they are currently the Cavatina Trio-In-Residence. Each player’s extensive experience has led them to win competitions, be orchestral leaders, and to broadcast on the BBC. The Trio was invited to attend the Trondheim Academy in Norway, and perform in the inaugural Birmingham International Piano Chamber Music Festival in November 2018. Their mentors include György Pauk, Christoph Richter, Nicolaj Znaider, with whom they have performed Schumann’s E flat major quintet. Trio Opal regularly appear at Wigmore Hall, Colston Hall, and St. Martin-in-the-Fields, as well as international venues.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
