About Seraphine Trio

Originally created in the fall of 2010, Seraphine Trio is composed of Sarah Fraser Raff on the violin, Amber Ghent on the cello and Brett Kingsbury on the piano. The group offers a wide variety of musical activities to their audience including chamber music, solo and orchestral performance, teaching, coaching and consulting.  

The name “seraphine” comes from the Hebrew word “seraphina” meaning “the fiery ones” which refers to the feminine equivalent of the seraphim angels from Jewish biblical scripture that have six wings and a passionate temperament.  Sarah and Amber are the original founders of the group, having played together for years in the Madawaska String Quartet.  Brett is the newest member of the group who has known Sarah since they were students at the University of Toronto.
