THEY are the daughters of a Japanese diplomat and on Monday, the three Fujita sisters will play in Huddersfield.
Now London-based, the sisters are Arisa (violin), Megumi (piano) and Honoka (cello).
The sisters have been playing chamber music together since they were children.
Their debut at the Wigmore Hall in London a decade ago was widely acclaimed and they have gone on to give concerts all over the UK and worldwide.
They have won numerous awards and prizes, both as a trio and individually.
On Monday (March 22), the Fujita Piano Trio will play at St Paul’s Hall in Huddersfield as part of the Huddersfield Music Society season.
The concert starts at 7.30pm and their programme will include Haydn’s Trio in G Hob XV25 Gypsy Rondo, Mendelssohn’s Trio in D Minor Op 49 as well as Trio in E minor Op 67 by Shostakovich.

Arisa studied with David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music, London where she now teaches
Honoka started to study the cello under Una O'Sullivan and Joan Lavelle in Ireland, then continued her studies in Tel Aviv, Israel, before coming to the UK to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
The trio also received coaching from the Takacs Quartet at the Guildhall.
Megumi started to study piano at the age of five in Japan. She then studied in both Atlanta, USA and Baghdad, Iraq before joining the Yehudi Menuhin School in the UK.
From there she went to the Royal College of Music.
The sisters won the Chamber Music Prize at the Guildhall School in the Nineties and have continued to win prizes and applause.
