Biography

No Borders Trio is a dynamic string trio committed to breaking down barriers through live music centred around the performance of classical music in diverse community settings, such as hospitals, care homes and arts venues across Scotland.

The trio consists of Frances Patterson (Violin), Suzanne Godet (Viola) and Joanna Stark (Cello), all recent graduates of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with previous experience of volunteering with non-for-profit organisations such as the Nevis Ensemble, and in dementia daycare centres. The group formed in early 2023 through their shared passion for chamber music and drive to build stronger links between arts and health. They are currently artists with Live Music Now Scotland and are recipients of the Glasgow UNESCO City of Music Small Awards Scheme.
