Established in 2017 while students at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, The Mithras Trio shot to international recognition by winning first prize at the 10th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2019.

In the same year they also achieved first prizes in the 67th Royal Over-Seas League Music Competition and Cavatina Intercollegiate Chamber Music Competition.

The Trio – Ionel Manciu (violin), Leo Popplewell (cello) and Dominic Degavino (piano) – will give the next concert for Canterbury Music Club which we are supporting as part of our commitment to the arts.
