Formed in 2013 when all the musicians were studying at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), the Chrysalis Trio comprises Katie Yap (viola), Kiran Phatak (flute) and Melina van Leeuwen (harp). The trio is one of the most exciting young ensembles to emerge from Melbourne’s fertile chamber music scene, and combines outstanding musicianship with a creative, inquisitive approach to repertoire.

Their name is inspired by their shared love of nature, and their time spent in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne, where they would take breaks from intensive rehearsals at ANAM, and discuss music, nature, history and philosophy.

Their program is built around Debussy and Ravel’s masterworks for this unique instrumental combination. In between, a musical adventure takes you from the French baroque to the world of contemporary American composer Miguel del Aguila.

This is the last concert in the South Coast Music Society’s successful 2019 program. This year has seen some exciting performances and enthusiastic audiences. Our 2020 program will be launched at the Chrysalis Trio concert on the 1st of December.
