Trio Turmo is a young, newly founded Norwegian string trio that had their debut tour in November 2018. In 2019 they played concerts in both Oslo and Bergen, and they also received invitation to play at the Den Norske Klub in London. They are planning and looking forward to future tours in Norway and Europe. The members of Trio Turmo have a strong focus on presence in their performances, and their playing is highly influenced by their joy of making music and their good friendship with one another.
