“First rate playing grounded in Classical Music” - Wall Street Journal
Project Trio will be performing two concerts to conclude their week long artist-in-residency program in the Erie community. For families, Project Trio will present instrumental compositions bridging the gap between classical music and popular culture to expose and engage younger audiences. In the evening, Project Trio will present a more traditional chamber concert showcasing their skills deserving of Gramophone Magazine's acclaim that they are “an ensemble willing and able to touch on the gamut of musical bases ranging from Baroque to nu-Metal and taking in pretty much every stylism in between,” while The Wall Street Journal hailed the Trio for their “wide appeal, subversive humor and first-rate playing.”
For families: Most well known for their beatboxing flautist, with over 74 million views on YouTube and appearances on popular TV shows on Nickelodeon and MTV, Project Trio is instantly recognizable to students of all ages. Using social media to broaden their reach beyond the concert stage and classroom, the Trio’s YouTube channel has propelled them to one of the most watched instrumental ensembles on the Internet. By presenting instrumental music fused with hip-hop, rock, and pop, Project Trio truly bridges the gap between classical music and pop culture and engages today’s younger audience.
Arrive Early! (2pm only) The Mercy Center for the Arts will be in the lobby with hands-on activities for children of all ages! Let the fun start early as teachers guide you and your little ones through all the different musical instruments. If Spring fever has you feeling silly, sit back and let local carictature artist, Bryan Toy, draw you!
Arrive Early! (2pm and 7:30pm) We are thrilled to host the Photographic Art Society of NWPA as they turn the lobby of the Walker Recital Hall into an art gallery for the audiences' viewing pleasure!
For adults: Combining the virtuosity of world-class artists with the energy of rock stars, Project Trio is breaking down traditional ideas of chamber music. Based in Brooklyn, N.Y., flautist Greg Pattillo, cellist Eric Stephenson, and bassist Peter Seymour met at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where they were honored with the 2013 CIM Alumni Achievement Award. Together, the three virtuosic composer/performers formed Project Trio, a passionate, high-energy chamber music ensemble in which they compose and arrange all of their own music, which they publish on their Harmonyville label. Their repertoire includes pieces for trio as well as several works with orchestra. Project Trio is a musical experience not to be missed.
