Founded in 1994, Seraphim Trio comprises pianist Anna Goldsworthy, violinist Helen Ayres, and cellist Timothy Nankervis. The trio is celebrated for its vitality and rapport and its innovative programming.

It appears regularly for Musica Viva, is frequently broadcast on ABC Classic FM, and is a regular guest at Australian chamber music festivals.
The trio maintains a robust commissioning program and has worked with a wide range of Australian composers. In 2008, its recording of Damain Barbeler's Exquisite Blood won 'recommended' work at the international Rostrum of Composers.
