We are extremely grateful to Charlotte Fraser for additional sponsorship for the musicians.


Formed in 2022, Natrio is an award-winning trumpet trio based in London, and are very excited to be returning to St Nicholas’ as part of the Charlotte Fraser Foundation Concert Series. Specialising in the performance of both modern and natural trumpets, the ensemble was created to showcase the uniquely varied and dynamic repertoire for trumpet trio and was awarded First Prize in the 2022 Musicians’ Company Brass Ensemble Prize for their diverse programme of Donninger, Britten and Gubaidulina. Since then they have performed a number of recitals at venues such as St John’s Smith Square, Regent Hall, and look forward to future concerts at the Market Drayton Music Festival, Swaledale Festival and the Musician’s Company Baroque Festival at St Lawrence’s, North London as part of their 2024 season.

Though relatively little-known, chamber music for three trumpets spans a wealth of musical styles and genres. From the ceremonial fanfares of the 17th Century to the experimental works of the 21st, Natrio’s performances draw on this exceptionally diverse repertoire to offer wide-ranging and vibrant musical experiences. As the group develops in the future, it is looking forward to expanding its repertoire by working with contemporary composers as well as building on their outreach work to offer their performances to as wide an audience as possible.

Formed while completing their studies at the Royal Academy of Music, Natrio is made up of three London-based freelance trumpeters. Its members currently play professionally in orchestras across the UK and abroad, including work with the Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Glyndebourne Touring Opera, Concerto Copenhagen, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Fantasia Orchestra and Southbank Sinfonia, while also performing regularly with chamber ensembles and as soloists.

All Profits to support emerging local young musicians at St Nicholas Church.
