Solstice are a contemporary piano trio based in Melbourne. The group focuses on performing, commissioning and arranging works which move away from traditional piano trio repertoire and span a wide range of musical genres, with a particular interest in performing works by local composers.
Solstice look to extend the concert experience creating an space for social connection and the sharing of ideas. They do this by exploring and collaborating across diverse styles of music and art, seeking out unique performance spaces, using their programmes to draw links with contemporary themes and looking for different ways to engage the audience.
