The Gryphon Trio celebrated its milestone 25th anniversary throughout 2018. The Trio continues to impress critics and audiences with its highly-refined, dynamic performances. The Trio tours regularly throughout North America and Europe, playing repertoire from the traditional to the contemporary. The Gryphon’s relationship with Music TORONTO – continuous since 1995 – included 10 years as our ensemble-in-residence (1998-2008).
