The Dominic Alldis Trio explores the meeting point of two worlds: classical music and jazz. Following in the tradition of the Jacques Loussier Trio, Dave Brubeck Quartet and Modern Jazz Quartet, the trio improvises on famous themes from classical music and opera as well as traditional folk songs, bringing a fresh perspective and contemporary feel. 

Previous engagements have included concerts at the London Jazz Festival, Festival Hall (South Bank Centre), Elgar Room (Albert Hall), Pizza Express Jazz Club, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Athenaeum Club, Chelsea Arts Club, Clapham Omnibus, Menuhin Hall, Cranleigh School, Amersham Festival, Oundle Festival, and St. James's Piccadilly. 

Their concerts resonate with a broad audience, engaging listeners across musical boundaries and celebrating the timeless art of improvisation.  

The trio is available for concert venues, festivals, music societies, churches and schools.
