Toru is a new Wellington-based trio consisting of three principal players from Orchestra Wellington. Debussy popularised this combination of flute, viola, and harp with his Sonate en trio; its magnificently varied timbral palette
has since captured the imaginations of composers, performers, and audiences alike. In 2016, Toru delighted audiences in Wellington and Greytown, performing a mix of romantic and contemporary repertoire.
