The Odora Trio was formed in 2016 at the Royal Academy of Music. In May 2017 the Trio were prize winners at the Isaacs and Pirani Piano Trio Competition at the Royal Academy with their performance of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A minor. Since then, the Trio has been under the guidance of eminent professors such as Andrew West, Raphael Wallfisch, Daniel Tong, Richard Lester, William Fong, Adrian Brendel, Melissa Phelps, Jo Cole and members of the Doric Quartet.

The Trio has performed widely throughout London and the UK including recitals most recently at the The Korean Cultural Centre, Southwark Cathedral, St Brides Fleet Street, The London Charterhouse, St Peter's Church Eaton Square, Wrexham County, Southwall Cathedral, Cromarty Arts Trust in Scotland and in Herefordshire performing for Concerts for Craswall, a music society set on bringing classical music to rural areas. 

 The Trio were selected to take part in the Piano Festival at the Royal Academy of Music in July 2018, where they were mentored by renowned cellist, Adrian Brendel. They also attended the Wye Valley Chamber Music Summer Residency in 2018. The trio looks forward to performances in Canterbury Music Club, Edinburgh Society of Musicians, Elgar's Birthplace Museum and Oxford University in the next year.
