Nimbus Trio

Nimbus Trio was founded in 2013 by Kitty Xiao and Jessica Laird.
The trio advocates and performs new music, including that of composer Kitty Xiao; and have commissioned new works by Australian composers as well as U.S composers.

The members of Nimbus Trio are Jessica Laird (flute, alto flute, bass flute), Cameron Jamieson (violin) and Kitty Xiao (composer/piano).

Nimbus Trio made their debut at Deakin Edge in Federation Square and the performance was broadcasted live on 3MBS. They have performed at various venues in Melbourne and were featured on 3MBS’ The Talent. ‘Nimbus’, ‘Nipper’ and ‘Novum’ were composed drawing inspiration from the work of Australian photographers Narelle Autio and Jane Brown. The three pieces were recently named as finalists in the Areon International Composition Competition. Nimbus have recently recorded their first studio album Novum.
