Can elements of jazz happen within the ‘confines’ of classical music? The Tee Trio will explore improvisation using classical music structures. With several focus points, they will explore various structures within the freedom of improvisation. They will also play pieces of music that look at the conversational side of music, as well as freeness within structure. Each 75 min set will include conversation among musicians and audience, so ask those questions you always had about classical music as a genre!

'Conversations within Communication'
Are conversations and communication the same, or are they different?

The Tee Trio believes they're slightly different, yet interrelated. Communication is just the passing on of information, while conversation involves emotions and the individuals entirely. But what happens when there are no words? Can we communicate without words?

Music can easily communicate to you various sounds when you hear it, but will you dive deeper into it and listen to the conversations happening within?

Through three different experiences, The Tee Trio explores the theme 'Conversations within Communication'. These are not just your usual series of concerts - they are 'guided listening' events that encourage you to look at the conversational side of music. Through open dialogue amongst the trio and audience, it will be a unique experience for every individual. Music is for everyone and all you need is imagination to make it come alive.

The Tee Trio

Weng Soon Tee, Piano
Laura Armstrong, Cello
Clarissa Lim, Violin

Weng, Laura and Clarissa met in 2016 at the Royal Academy of Music, London, during their undergraduate study. Initially strangers, they were brought together by their love of chamber music and have since performed across England.

Praised for their awareness of ensemble playing and musicality, they were semi-finalists in the St Martin-in-the-Fields International Chamber Music competition in 2017. Following that in Summer 2018, they were invited as Young Artists in the annual Lichfield Festival and Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival (Scotland), and they also gave their debut performance at the renowned St James’ Piccadilly Church in London. Most recently, the trio performed at St Boltoph’s without Aldgate and played in a masterclass with John Myerscough from the renowned Doric String Quartet.

The Tee Trio was also privileged to receive scholarships to study under Thomas Ades in the International Musicians’ Seminar Prussia Cove 2018, as well as with Carole Presland, Leland Chen, Alexander Bailey, Maureen Smith at the Cadenza Music Course. At the Royal Academy of Music, they received regular coachings from David Smith, Michael Foyle, and Nicola Eimer.
