Kassia Trio
The Kassia Trio is a modern re-invention of the piano trio made up of two saxophones (Chloe Percy-Smith and Emma Jones) and piano (Amy Bladon). Performing new music and arrangements of repertoire from the past, this versatile ensemble combines graduates of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague.

Through exploring a range of repertoire, the trio’s aim is to keep classical music accessible, as well as helping to promote the saxophone as a classical instrument. Their repertoire ranges from modern pieces written for their specific instrumentation, to classical transcriptions, as well as lighter well-known musical classics. Their saxophone line-up is interchangeable, covering soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones. Recent performances have included recitals in Cheltenham, Bristol, Birmingham and Beckenham. The trio have also enjoyed being part of various outreach and community projects, most recently performing in a concert series devised for adults with babies and very young children.
